It is the responsibility of tenants in most instances to replace bulbs/lamps within your property (not communal areas). These include:
The lights are a 16w 2d bulb which can be changed by holding onto the base of the fitting and simply pulling the bulb out. These bulbs are currently (January 2013) available from Edmondson’s, Wickes, Wilkinsons and B&Q and cost approximately £8 each.
The only exception to the tenant being responsible is that we will undertake the work for elderly and disabled residents for bathroom and security lights.
The documents attached provide instructions about how to remove the casings to reach the bulb.
