Due to the impact of COVID-19, our response time to non-emergency repairs may be longer than usual.
Repairs are an important part of looking after your home. Sometimes repairs are necessary because of general wear and tear, or because things go wrong and need a little extra attention.
You can request a non-emergency repair by completing our online form below. Please DO NOT use this form to report emergency repairs.
If you have an emergency repair please call us on 0800 048 8955 (includes out-of-hours emergency repairs).
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 gas leak or dangerous electrical fault
- Unsecure front door or window causing a security issue
All repair requests are categorised in our responsive repair and heating/hot water repair timescales listed below.
