Here are the type of emergency repairs you can report:

  • Burst pipes/uncontrollable leaks
  • No power to the property
  • Boarding up broken windows
  • Insecure front door or window
  • Loss of drinking water. Please call Thames Water to see if they are aware of the issue. 

When you can expect your repair to be completed

We prioritise every responsive repair depending on its urgency and allocate a target for the maximum time that it should take to complete your repair.  We will try to complete your repair more quickly than the maximum timescale. 

Please be aware that we may not always be able to achieve the target timescales for non emergency repairs during the Covid crisis.

The target timescales that we apply are:

Emergency – 2hrs

Urgent -  24hours

Routine  - 20 working days
