If there is a problem with a council-owned home and a repair is needed, the tenant should contact us to request it. We will assess it and if necessary, arrange for the repair to be carried out. Depending on the problem, it is sometimes the tenant's responsibility to make the repair - please see the Tenant's Handbook.
Request a Repair
The easiest and most convenient way is to request a repair by completing the online fault report below.
What You Need to Tell Us:
- The address of the property where the repair is required
- Your name
Your address (if it's different from the property to be repaired)
Contact telephone numbers
Access arrangements to the property
The type of appliance
What the fault is
Alternatively, call the Housing Team on 01793 445503 or visit Customer Services at:
Swindon Direct Reception
Wat Tyler House
Please see also Emergency and Out-of-hours repairs.
We will confirm receipt of your request by the end of the following working day. Sometimes, an inspector will need to call before any work is started. We will contact you to make an appointment for the inspector and/or the tradesman to call.
A responsible adult must be present to allow our inspector or tradesperson access. The inspection or repair will not be carried out if the only person at home is aged under 16; you will need to re-request the repair.
If you need to change or cancel an appointment, please give us at least 24 hours' notice.
