Our Repairs Service

When something goes wrong within your home, we understand that it can cause distress and inconvenience and that you want to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Our in-house maintenance team, Platform Property Care, carries out the repairs and maintenance work on your home.  We employ a range of skilled trades people as well as offering opportunities for others to build a career with us through our apprenticeship programme. In some circumstances, we also use sub-contractors to support our repairs and maintenance service.

  • An unsecured home, for example, external doors or windows broken or damage to the actual structure of the house;
  • Failed smoke or carbon monoxide alarms;
  • A complete loss of heating from 1 November until 1 April.

We arrange buildings insurance cover for the main structure of your home but we do not arrange household contents insurance for you.  Contents insurance is designed to help protect your possessions. No matter how careful you are, there’s always a risk that your belongings could be broken, damaged or stolen so home contents insurance can help provide peace of mind should the worst happen.
