Emergency

For emergency repairs within office hours, please contact us on 0141 550 3581. For an emergency repair outwith these hours please use the numbers above.

The contractor will attend within 2 hours and where possible the service will be restored or the item made safe as soon as possible.

A follow up job line may be created to fully complete the repair.

Emergency repairs are those where there is a risk to your safety, danger to health and to prevent serious damage to the building or total loss of services

Non-Emergency

The repair will be completed within 6 working days (10 working days for external repairs)

Repairs in this category will be attended to within 6 or 10 working days depending on the type of repair involved.  If the repair is inside your property we will arrange a mutually agreed 2 hour slot with you for our contractor to attend and carry out the work.  Where the nature of the repair affects your comfort or convenience we will do our best to get you the first available appointment for the trade required.  Where the job is external and the contractor can reach the area without you being in attendance then there is no need for an appointment to be made.

Right to Repair

As a result of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001, tenants are entitled to certain specified repairs being carried out within a certain timescale, failing which the tenant is entitled to a flat rate compensation payment as detailed in the Right to Repair legislation.  More details of this legislation can be found in Scottish Statutory Instrument 2002/03 Number 316 – “Right to Repair”.

Thenue Housing has a policy to enable the Right to Repair legislation to be implemented.  To view this policy click here.
