It’s important to remember that not all repairs are our responsibility. Before reporting your repair, check our repairs guide.

Annual servicing

We carry out annual gas safety and regular electrical checks in all our homes. Not only does this help to keep you and your family safe, but it’s a legal requirement.

We will write to you ahead of time to let you know when your appointments will be. We do our best to work around your schedule, so please contact us straight away if an appointment isn’t convenient.

What to do if you smell gas

Get out of your home, calmly warn your neighbours. Call the free 24-hour national gas emergency service on 0800 111 999 (but make sure you are well away from the leak before using your mobile phone).

What happens after I book a repair?

If you have booked your repair using your online account, you don’t need to do anything else. We will confirm your appointment by phone, text message or letter, and then we will see you on the day. Remember we don’t give appointment times for repairs in communal areas.

Although we will do our best to keep to your appointment, sometimes we may need to change it. For example, if we do not have the part needed for the repair.

A responsible adult must be in your home while the work is taking place.

If you need to make special arrangements (like booking a day off work), we recommend asking a family member or friend to help out.

If your repair worsens, get in touch as we may need to re-prioritise it.

Can I bring legal action against whg if I remain dissatisfied with your service?
You are entitled to take legal action against whg if you remain dissatisfied. You may be entitled to compensation. Your solicitor may take a percentage of this and will recover payment of some of your legal costs, but if you lose then you are likely to have to pay legal costs without receiving any compensation. To avoid confusion later, if you do seek legal advice please ensure you are fully aware of what you are signing up to – sometimes the process cannot be stopped even if you later change your mind. We cannot advise you as we are your landlord.  Citizens Advice can also provide independent legal guidance.
