Shared repairs

You can report a common repair in a number of ways. Remember the more information you can give us about the repair that you’re reporting the better.

Owners can report problems or issues relating to the following:

  • Communal stairwells including lighting, flooring, banisters, windows and walls
  • Close door or door entry Systems
  • Lifts
  • Loss of power to communal areas
  • Standard of close or window cleaning
  • Communal fencing
  • Communal landscape maintenance
  • Vandalism to common parts

Ways to report a repair

Response times

To prioritise all the repairs we have to carry out, response times are split into two categories - emergency and routine repairs.

The type of repair will determine how long we will take to respond and complete the repair (where possible).

Response Category Response Time
Emergency Within four hours
Routine Within ten working days
