Repairs and maintenance

Report a repair

Due to the national lockdown there will be a reduction in our teams availability.
In the interest of safeguarding our residents and employees, from Wednesday 20 January 2021 we will only be attending emergency and urgent repairs.  Appointments for less urgent works will recommence once the national lockdown restrictions have been reduced.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.

If your repair is not urgent, please can you contact us after lockdown. We are unable to raise non-urgent or non-emergency repairs at this time. An emergency or urgent repair is a repair which is a risk to person or property.
