  • Our team is receiving a high volume of calls with requests for repairs. We're sorry for any delay in booking routine appointments and are working hard to catch-up.This does not affect our commitment to attend any emergency repair within 24 hours.

Request a repair

Since the start of this pandemic, we have prioritised the repairs needed to keep our residents and communities safe.

We are now operating a near full repairs service, however you may need to wait longer than usual for routine repairs (repairs that are not urgent or emergencies. See below for a full list of repairs that fall into these categories). There is also a national shortage of some materials, meaning in some cases we will need to make an interim repair, returning at a later date to complete it when the material is available. We appreciate your patience during this time. Before your appointment, we will ask you questions about the health of your household. Although restrictions have eased, we still need to work very carefully to continue to limit transmission of Covid-19. Please watch this helpful video which will guide you through what you can expect from us during the repairs process, from booking to the appointment, and the steps we will ask you to take to ensure everyone’s safety.

One of the appointments we must prioritise for your safety is our programme of annual gas safety checks. If you are due an appointment, we will have already written to you. Please make sure you read the letter and contact us if you have any questions about the process.

You can continue requesting a repair as normal. Please also see our advice on managing minor repairs.

Who is responsible for repairs?

As your landlord, it’s our job to keep your home in good condition and to fix problems you report to us. But there are also some things that are your responsibility to look after.

We’re responsible for:

  • the structure of your property
  • communal areas
  • fixtures and fittings we installed, such as plug sockets, cupboards, sinks and baths
  • heating, boiler and gas repairs.

You’re responsible for:

  • anything you bring to the property, including appliances such as cookers or fridges
  • minor tasks, such as replacing light bulbs and unblocking sinks
  • items installed by previous tenants, such as cat-flaps and shelving
  • maintaining your garden and fencing
  • damage caused by you, your family or your visitors.
