Report a repair

Apart from homes where the resident owns or part-owns the property themselves, Derwent Living is responsible for most (but not all) repairs in its residents’ homes. More information on who’s responsible for repairs is available below.

If you have an emergency repair, you can call the main repair number during office hours; but outside of office hours you need to call the emergency out-of-hours number. There’s more info on that further down the page.

And finally, for non-emergency repairs you can use the form below, or call the repairs team on 0845 602 4125. You can also report, track and rate repairs in (MY) – call 01332 346 477 to have a password sent to you.


Emergency repairs

If you have a repair which requires urgent attention please contact us immediately on 0845 602 4125 during our office hours which are:

Monday – Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-4.30pm

If it is outside of these times then please call  0116 257 6727.

An emergency repair might include:

  • Gas leaks
  • Major storm damage
  • An unusable toilet (if you only have one in the house)
  • A total heating or hot-water system failure in winter

If the repair is an emergency then we will arrange for a contractor to call on you within 24 hours. Someone will need to stay in your home, to allow us access to carry out the repair.
