Request a repair

Repairs are an important part of looking after your home. Sometimes repairs are necessary because of general wear and tear, or because things go wrong and need a little extra attention.

You can request general property, heating and hot water repairs by calling our customer services team on 01785 312000.

All repair requests are categorised either under our responsive repair timescales or gas heating repair timescales.  Please see below for further details.
