Information about repairs
So that we can continue to invest in our existing housing stock and provide high quality affordable homes for people in Wales, we would like to remind Tenants of our Recharge Policy and advise that we will recover outstanding money that is owed in relation to rechargeable repairs. This includes lock changes that have taken place due to accidental damage or lost keys.
If you have had a repair that falls under the policy and would like to discuss making a payment with a member of staff, please contact the team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
