Repairs

Our repairs service aims to keep your home safe and secure, and supports you to maintain it to a good standard.

Making repairs to your home

We carry out non-emergency repairs from 8am to 4pm on Mondays to Thursdays, and 8.30am to 4pm on Fridays.

There are also appointments available on Saturdays, 9am to 12pm, and Wednesdays, 4pm to 7pm. These require at least one week’s notice.

Repair categories

  • Emergency repairs will be carried out within 24 hours
  • Appointed repairs will be carried out within 40 calendar days
  • Planned repairs will be carried out within 90 days

Examples of types of repairs

Emergency repairs

A repair is considered to be an emergency where there is a serious risk to your health, safety or security or where there is risk of serious damage to your home. Examples include heating system failure or no water supply.

Appointed repairs

Examples of appointed repairs include replacing your toilet, basin, bath or shower;or fixing a garage roof.

Planned repairs

These apply to fencing and concrete works only.

Useful information

If you aren’t going to be at your home when we carry out external works, please let us know beforehand. If it is unnecessary for you to be there at the time of the repair/ inspection, it will be classed as an “all-day“ appointment.

When the inspector / tradesperson has attended they will leave a card confirming the work or inspection has been completed.

If repairs are reported as a result of a crime, please obtain a crime reference number from the police (we will be unable to visit without this number). Subject to circumstance, the repair may still be re-chargeable to you.

Property MOTs

The Greenfields Property MOT is a similar concept to a vehicle MOT, where a general check is carried out on all key components within your home, to ensure it is safe and secure. The aim is to reduce the amount of repairs we make to your home, which will be more convenient for you; and to save time and money for us. We will also discuss your repair responsibilities and where works are rechargeable. Where appropriate, we will do an MOT where we are concerned about the overall condition of your home and the high or low use of our repairs service.

We also do MOTs as part of our Mutual Exchange process (swapping your home with another resident).
