Report a repair
The recent stormy weather has brought heavy rain and strong winds, with more expected over the next few days, so bear with us when reporting repairs as this has meant that we’re particularly busy.
If rain is heavier than normal, your gutters may overflow. This doesn’t mean they are blocked, they just can’t cope with the volume of rain. If gutters leak in normal rainy conditions then report them in the usual way.
Please note that in high winds and torrential rain we can't work on roofs or ladders.
Our Repairs service runs flexibly from 8am to 5.45pm.
We have an out of hours service delivering emergency repairs from 5.45pm to 8am.
Before you call us, please check the list below to make sure it's not a repair that is your responsibility.
Repairs that are your responsibility
Under the terms of your tenancy agreement, repairs to the following are your responsibility:
- letterboxes, door knockers and doorbells
- Boundaries, fences and gates
- latches and bolts
- door handles
- kitchen cupboard and drawer handles, knobs, catches and hinges
- sink, basin and bath plugs and chains
- blocked pipes to sinks, basins, baths and toilets
- coat hooks
- toilet seats and pull chains
- tiles and splash backs, including fireplace tiles
- window catches and fasteners on wooden windows in houses, but not flats
- plaster cracks caused by shrinkage
- external grates
We also expect you to replace light-bulbs, fuses and electrical plugs (not wall sockets) yourself.
if you lose your keys, it’s your responsibility to get the lock changed and new keys cut. We can do the repair and charge you if you prefer. If the lock has seized up, we will do the repair.
Report your repair by clicking the button below, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Or, you can call us on 0115 915 2222 between 8.30am - 5pm, Monday to Friday.
If the repair is our responsibility we’ll give you a reference number and arrange an appointment. Repair requests are put into groups according to how urgent the repair is. We charge for some kinds of repairs – we’ll let you know if you’ll be charged when you report your repair.
