My property needs repairs

If your property needs repairs, you need to let the right people know. Who you contact depends on whether you’re renting from us, a private landlord or a housing association.

Council housing

If your council property needs repairs to bring it up to a decent standard, then this is our responsibility. See our page on repairs, alterations and upkeep of your council home.

Private rented accommodation

If your privately rented property needs repairs to bring it up to a decent standard, then this is your landlord’s responsibility. You can get advice from our private tenancy team about housing standards.

If you’ve been unable to resolve issues with your landlord and feel that you need to move, consider your housing options.

Housing association

If your housing association property needs repairs to bring it up to a decent standard, then this is your housing association landlord’s responsibility. You can get advice from your landlord, who will advise you of what improvements they can help you with.
