Request a repair

Before you ask us for a repair, make sure who's responsible as there are some repairs you'll need to carry out yourself.

You can request a repair online or email us at BHCC.repairs@mearsgroup.co.uk

If your council home needs an urgent repair, you can call us on 0800 052 6140.

If the repair is for a suspected gas leak, please call the National Grid on 0800 111 999.

How long does a repair take?

When you ask us for a repair, the time it takes for us to start the work depends on the type of repair.

We'll decide if your repair is:

  • urgent, which we'll start within 24 hours
  • routine, which we'll start within 20 workings days
  • complex, which will take longer than 20 days to complete

You can read more about types of repairs in our repairs handbook (PDF 693KB)
