Our customer service standards
It’s our aim to always answer your question or request first time, but sometimes we need to pass it to a specialist team. If we do, we’ll let you know when you can expect a response.
If you’re one of our customers we’ll ask you some security questions. This is to make sure we’re not giving information about your account or requests to unauthorised people.
If you want to authorise a friend or relative to contact us on your behalf please let us know.
Read more about how we're protecting your personal information.
If it’s an emergency call us directly on 0330 343 0016. See also our emergency repairs page

When we visit you
When we visit your home, we’ll show you our identity badge. Our contractors will have a letter from us authorising them to carry out work. Ask to see it. If in doubt call us.
If we’re coming to carry out repairs our team will treat your home with respect and tidy the area afterwards. We ask that you help us by making sure that area where we’ll be working is clear of household items.
If you’re not happy with what we’ve done, how we’ve done it or the behaviour of one of our staff or contractors please tell us. We need this feedback so that we can get it right next time. You can use the make a complaint website form, call us, email us or come and speak to us. For more about our complaints process please see our complaints page.
