An emergency repair is considered to be any fault which carries the risk of immediate injury or health risk to people or major damage to property.
An example of this could be a gas leak, a very heavy water leak (for example, the leak would fill a bucket or bowl in minutes).
We aim to deal with emergency repairs within 4 hours by either making safe or fixing.
It is important that if you consider your repair to be an emergency please don’t hesitate and call us on our 24/7 emergency line on 01782 635200.
Non-emergency repairs are things you can reasonably live with for a short time without immediate risk to your safety, security or health, for example, an internal door repair, a loose or damaged switch or socket, or plastering.
Non-emergency repairs will be carried out within 8 - 12 working days. Please be aware that these timescales may need to be extended due to the nature of certain repairs.
If you have an emergency repair call our 24/7 line on 01782 635200

A recharge is a charge to customers for the cost of any repairs and/or clearances which are the customers' responsibility or are as a result of misuse, deliberate damage or neglect.
After a tenancy ends and before a new tenant moves in, we will make a decision about whether to keep any alterations or to remove them and replace them with standard items.
If we decide not to remove a non-standard item, we take responsibility for the repair.
