What are emergency repairs?  

An emergency is anything affecting your health and safety, or that could seriously damage your home if not dealt with quickly. Examples of emergency repairs include:  

  • severe drainage issues, blockages or water leaks that can’t be left overnight
  • broken front door locks that mean you’re locked in or can’t secure your home 
  • electrical faults or power outages causing faulty electrical sockets or no lighting
  • repairs for vulnerable residents.    

Although they will try to fix the issue, the response team may only be able to make the situation safe. If this is the case, we’ll arrange another appointment for additional work.  
You can only report emergency repairs if you rent your home from us. And please bear in mind, we can’t fix water issues in communal areas – these are the responsibility of your water supplier.
