We are pleased to confirm that from Tuesday 1 August 2023, our in-house team Clarion Response will deliver repairs for all residents.
Previously, Equans provided repairs for residents in areas of London South and South regions.
We have notified all residents affected by the change, to advise that Clarion Response will now be responsible for their repairs.
Bringing the repairs in-house means that we can provide residents with a more accessible and reliable service, and offer more ways to manage repairs.
This includes online repair booking and appointment tracking for most repairs, to ensure a more consistent service.
Our repairs commitment:
Our priority is to complete repairs effectively and efficiently, ideally at the first visit, to minimise the inconvenience to you, and ensure we provide a high standard of service.
From time to time, more complex repairs may require more than one visit, especially if we need a specialist part, but we aim to minimise any delays.
Who will carry out your repair
Clarion Response will carry out your repair. Operatives will be in Clarion Response uniform and ID badge that allows you to identify them. They will also be driving a Clarion Response vehicle.
Where we have to use a specialist contractor, we will let you know. When they attend, they will not be in a Clarion Response uniform or vehicle, but you should still ask to see their ID before letting them into your home.
