What is our Virtual Assistant?

Our Virtual Assistant is a chatbot or chat robot. It uses artificial intelligence to understand your question and offer an answer.

Each time you use the chat service, you'll connect to our Virtual Assistant first. It can be the quickest way to find answers to your questions without speaking to a Live Chat agent.

Asking questions to the Virtual Assistant

When using the Virtual Assistant, it’s good to keep it simple with short sentences. This makes it easier for the Virtual Assistant to understand and give the best answer. For example, you could type: “I want to report a repair”. 

The virtual assistant won’t be able to discuss personal information, including:

  • your tenancy details
  • your rent account
  • your repair requests, current or historical

Please do not give any personal information to the Virtual Assistant. You'll only need to supply personal information when you speak to a Live Chat agent.
