Housing applications closed

The housing register is currently closed until Friday 26 February. New applications, proofs, enquiries or change requests to existing applications will not be accepted during this period. If you are already registered, you can continue to bid for properties during this time.

Emergency repairs only

Sorry, due to the national lockdown we can only provide emergency repairs at the moment. Go to service updates.

Emergency housing repairs

We have an emergency repair service to deal with urgent repairs outside normal working hours. If you need an emergency repair, call us on 0116 254 9439.

Emergency repairs include:

  • Dangerous electrical faults
  • Fire damage
  • Heating failures involving elderly or sick people
  • Major plumbing faults resulting in large loss of water.

We don't deal with jobs which can safely be left until normal working hours. We will usually 'make safe' or carry out temporary repairs.

Permanent repairs are left for normal working hours, so please do not expect the job to be done fully during emergency hours.
