Coronavirus: an update on repairs

We have had to suspend all non-emergency repairs. This is to help keep you and your household safe, by minimising the contact you have within people outside your immediate family.

This list covers the repairs we will continue to provide. Emergency repairs are normally defects that put the health and safety or security of the customer, or a third party, at immediate risk. Emergency repairs may also be carried out if the structure of the building is at risk.

When we complete emergency repairs, we have added in extra safety steps to help keep you and our operative safe.
