We want you to enjoy living in your home, so aim to provide an excellent repairs service to all of our tenants.

Once your repair has been raised we will send you the details of the contractor it has been allocated to and the expected completion date of the works as well as a short satisfaction survey for you to send back to us once the job has been completed.

To help us provide an efficient repairs service, please could you:

  • report any problems as soon as possible
  • give us as much detail as you can about the problem
  • ensure we have the correct contact details for you
  • tell us when you are available for an appointment

Most of the complaints we receive about dampness turn out to be the result of condensation.

This is caused when moisture carried by warm air reaches a cold surface and turns back into water. You can limit the amount of condensation in your home by doing the following:

  • try to keep your home warm enough to avoid having cold surfaces that water vapor can gather on
  • not blocking up any vents or airbricks
  • leaving gaps between your furniture and the walls
  • trying to reduce the amount of water in the air by:
  • keeping lids on saucepans when cooking
  • opening windows every day
  • closing doors to prevent water vapor travelling to colder areas of your home

For more information, please see our leaflet called Managing Condensation
