Report a housing repair

Details on how to report a housing repair to Perth & Kinross Council

We're encouraging tenants to use the online service MyPKC to report their non-emergency housing repairs. Tenants are asked to report all non-emergency routine repairs using MyPKC wherever possible. See details below on how to use MyPKC.

However, if you're elderly, vulnerable or don't have access to online facilities, please don't worry. We will still take your telephone call.

Reporting non-emergency repairs online

If you are a Council tenant and something is broken or not working properly in your home you can report a repair online. The MyPKC reporting service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Reporting repairs online is quick, easy and MyPKC is available 24/7 so you can report your repair when it's convenient for you. Save time - do it online!

Here, our tenant Megane Kilpatrick explains how quick and simple MyPKC was to use when she reported a repair: 

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

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.

If you our require an emergency repair 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.
