*Non-emergency repairs or non-urgent repairs are things you can reasonably live with for a short time without immediate risk to our safety or health, for example, an internal door repair or plastering. Please report all non-emergency repairs using our online repairs reporting service. This will allow us to clearly prioritise all repairs effectively and speed up our response time.

Important Information

An emergency repair is defined as something which could cause danger to health, residents' safety or serious damage to property. This includes, for example, severe roof leaks; burst pipes; severe loss of water; blocked drains; blockage of your only toilet; complete loss of power or lighting; complete loss of heating in cold weather; dangerous electrical fault; & security following a break-in. When attending an out of hours repair, our contractor will normally be instructed to make the repair safe only, with the full repair being carried out during normal opening hours. 
Please only use the out of hours service for a genuine emergency repair. If you call an emergency contractor for a less serious repair, you may be charged all costs involved if we think you have acted unreasonably.
