The repairs service is provided by our partner organisation, Kingstown Works Limited (KWL) and a number of other specialist contractors. They do their best to complete all repairs on the first visit, yet this is not always possible and a further visit or follow-up work may be required. If the work cannot be completed in one visit the contractor will explain what needs to be done next and will make arrangements with you for further visits.
If a repair is found to be needed because of negligence, intentional damage, or misuse, you may be charged for the repair.
An emergency repair is something that needs fixing urgently because there is immediate danger to either the occupants or public. These can only be reported by telephoning 01482 300 300. You will be asked some additional questions to confirm that the repair is an emergency and whether it is safe for us to attend. To carry out emergency repairs our contractors will observe safe working practices whilst in your home.
See list below for examples -
- locked out of property
- no heating or hot water (during extreme weather)
- total loss of power, water or gas to the property
- damaged door or window has left your home insecure
- severe leaks or burst pipes
- a leak that is affecting the electrics or unsafe electrics
If you misreport a problem to get a quicker response it stops us from responding quickly to real emergencies. If we find that you have misreported your repair or your circumstances, we may charge you for the cost of the emergency call-out.
If you have an outstanding repair and you need to inform us that you are now self-isolating or have Coronavirus symptoms telephone 01482 300 300.
