Repairs to your home
Alliance Homes is committed to providing you with an excellent repairs service that is easy for you to access at a time that suits you. Our dedicated Repairs Team is here to respond to repairs that you report to us and we are constantly looking at ways in which we can improve the services we provide to you.
How can I report my repairs?
You can report your repairs in the following ways:-
By phone on 03000 120 120 between the hours of 8am-6pm
By email on firstname.lastname@example.org
OnLine at Online Repairs Reporting
By visiting any of our offices, or ‘MOLLY’ our mobile office
For out-of-hours emergencies, call “out of hours” team on 01934 622669
Can I make an appointment?
We offer appointments for repairs and if we have a mobile number for you, we will text to let you know our operative is on his way. You can also agree your own password with the Repairs Hotline who will pass this information onto the operative; this means that you can be sure of the caller's identity.
What happens if I cannot keep the appointment?
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please contact the Repairs Hotline on 03000 120 120 and we will arrange a new day and time for you.
If the operative calls to your home and is unable to gain access to carry out the repair, they will leave you a card with the details of your repair; including the date and time they called.
It is important that when you receive this card that you telephone the number on the front within five working days to re-arrange your appointment.
If we do not hear from you, your repair request will be automatically closed and will not be carried out until we hear from you again.
