We have target times to carry out any repairs that we are responsible for. Repairs are categorised into the following four priorities:
We will tell you the priority of your repair when you report it.
Where the repair requires additional work or scaffolding, the repairs timescales will not apply.
We will attend to an immediate repair within two hours to make sure that there is no danger to residents or serious damage to property. Where further repair work is necessary, a follow up visit will be arranged to complete the repair. Examples of immediate repairs include:
- danger to life and limb
We will attend to an emergency repair within 24 hours to make sure that there is no danger to residents or serious damage to property. Where further repair work is necessary, a follow up visit will be arranged to complete the repair. Examples of emergency repairs include:
- water leaks where uncontrollable
- blocked toilet where you have no other toilet
We will attend to an urgent repair within five working days.
We will attend to a normal repair within 21 working days. An example of a normal repair would be replacing tap washers.
We are responsible for maintaining and repairing the structure and outside of your home and any fittings we have provided. Your repair responsibility depends on whether you are a tenant or leaseholder.
Home contents insurance
You are responsible for insuring the contents of your home. We have set up a home contents insurance scheme. Premiums are from as little as £1.27 per week for a £9,000 sum insured.
