Coronavirus (COVID-19) customer advice

Latest page update – 4pm Tuesday 23 August

Housing Plus Group will be keeping COVID-secure working practices in place. We believe this the safest decision for our customers, staff and communities. 

Reporting repairs

Emergency repairs

Our emergency repairs service is operating as usual. If you need to report an emergency repair, call 0800 048 8955.

An emergency repair is a problem that represents an immediate risk to safety, security or health, such as:   

  • No heating or hot water   
  • Major damage to the structure of your home   
  • An uncontrollable water leak   
  • A dangerous electrical fault  
  • A gas leak – If you smell gas or fumes, you must immediately call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999 and ensure you are safe before reporting it to us. 
  • Unsecure front door or window causing a security issue   

Non-emergency repairs

You can report non-emergency repairs 24/7 online. To allow us to dedicate our resources where they are most needed, please do not call to ask for updates about non-emergency repairs, we will contact you to make an appointment.

Help us keep you safe

The safety and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues continues to be our number one priority. 

We must carry out vital safety checks at your home when they become due. 

Contacting or visiting our customer services team

Our offices are now open for essential visits by appointment only. To contact a member of the team please call 0800 048 8955.

Did you know, non-urgent, routine repairs can be reported online 24/7?

Please don’t be offended by these questions, which we will be asking ALL customers before we visit their home. We know that you will understand that we need to work together to reduce the spread of infection.
