Advice for tenants

Although we are working hard to continue providing essential services to those who need them most, our housing services are inevitably feeling the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak. 

This means that we are currently only able to carry out emergency repairs.

Contact us about a repair

If you have a housing problem which puts the health, safety or security of you or others at immediate risk, you should report it immediately:

We regret that we are unable to deal with non-urgent repair requests until further notice.
