It's our job to keep the structure and exterior of our properties in good condition. We also look after heating and sanitation facilities we've installed and the supply of water, gas and electricity.
As a resident, you're responsible for minor repairs within your home.
You can find out exactly what you're responsible for as a resident on our repairs responsiblities page, but examples include locks and keys, kitchen fittings and leaking taps. If you're an older resident living in Berkshire or on the Isle of Dogs, you can get help from our handyman service.
We can help vulnerable residents who need extra support with these kinds of tasks but there is a minimum charge of £150. So if you have a friend or relative who can help, please ask them first to save unnecessary cost.
To get more information about repairs or your responsibilities, please contact our customer contact centre on 0300 123 9966.
