Report a housing repair online

Alternatively, call the Housing Repairs and Improvements Service on 01738 476000 and select Option 1 or email between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. 

Please be aware that many minor maintenance jobs and repairs are the responsibility of tenants. We have provided a number of video tutorials to help tenants with the most common minor maintenance jobs we are contacted about.

To report an emergency housing repair

If there is an emergency outwith those hours, call 01738 476000 and select Option 4. Your call will be picked up by the emergency repairs service, select option 1 for Gas Central Heating emergencies and option 2 for other emergency repairs.

Emergency work includes:

  • blocked toilets where the premises contain only one toilet
  • blocked or leaking drains (not blocked sinks)
  • serious storm, accident or floor damage to rooms
  • dangerous structures
  • serious electrical faults, such as overheating of sockets or switches
  • regaining entry where a tenant is accidentally locked out (there is likely to be a charge for this).

Emergencies will be attended to and made safe within 24 hours of being reported and, where possible, we will carry out the full repair.
