Who is responsible for what

It’s important to remember that not all repairs are our responsibility. Our repairs and home maintenance guide can tell you whether some common issues are our responsibility or yours. Please check it before booking repair.

Gas and electrical checks

We test whg-installed gas appliances in your home every year and carry out an electrical safety check every few years to make sure everything is working correctly.

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).

Could it be a quick fix?

Our self help video guides can help you resolve some common repair problems in the home without the need for an appointment.

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.
