What type of repair do you provide?

Emergency repairs: Something which needs to be made safe urgently. This includes repairs such as no water, total power failure, health and safety issues, burst internal pipes, gas leaks or securing the lock on a main door. More information can be found on our repairs timescales page. This covers routine repairs and all other repairs.

How do you report an emergency repair?

If your repair is an emergency then please contact a member of your care team or contact us on 07918598801. Our first priority will be to make your emergency safe. We will then discuss the next steps with you on how to rectify the issue. You will be notified of the target date the repair will be completed, and whether a contractor or inspection is needed. We will ensure your home is safe as quickly as possible. As part of our tenancy management services we will also arrange for any follow-up work required.

How do you report routine repairs?

First of all, check if the repair is our responsibility - many minor repairs may be your responsibility. The best and easiest way to report non-emergency repair issues to us is online. Use our online report a repair form to tell us what the issue is, and let us know what days are convenient for us to book an appointment. In most cases, we will get back to you within 5 working days to confirm an appointment. If we need to pass your repair to one of our contractors to carry out, we will let you know who they are and they will make contact with you to confirm an appointment.




Emergency repairs

An emergency repair is something that poses an immediate risk to your health, safety or security. This is why it's important we look at these jobs first.

Some examples of emergency repairs include:

  • Total loss of electricity, water or gas
  • Partial loss of power, such as no lights or no drinking water
  • A serious plumbing or gas leak
  • A serious roof leak or major structural failure
  • Your heating breaks down in winter (October - March)
  • If your heating breaks down in non-heating season (April - September), this will be logged as a routine repair and attended within 30 days
  • You need to secure your home following an incident of fire, domestic violence, police activity or if the property becomes empty
  • Any other repair that puts you or others around you in danger


If your repair is an emergency, please call us as soon as possible and we will do all we can to help.

  • Repairs to light pendants and electrical fittings

Major and planned repairs

Some maintenance works might take longer, due to their complexity and cost. Where this is the case, we will discuss this with you and explain what we are doing to resolve the issues you are having. This may involve us completing temporary repairs whilst we plan for longer term improvements.

We ensure we do this in a way that there is no health and safety risk and the required work does not disrupt your quality of life. This means we can minimise the disturbance for everyone and make the best use of the money we spend. If this happens, and we require access to your home to complete the work, we will work with you to agree a date for the work to be carried out.

As part of our tenancy management services, each year we also carry out an extensive programme of improvement works to our properties.

Communal repairs

Most communal areas will be the responsibility of Citta Housing. However, some shared areas or services will be your responsibility to maintain and/or repair.

Please refer to your tenancy agreement for more details.
