If you own your home
Regular maintenance on your home will make sure that it is kept in a good condition. If you think repairs are needed you should contact a reputable contractor. Do this straight away for faults that could damage your health, for example faulty electrical wiring.
In some cases we may be able to offer a loan to help home owners with an emergency, or urgent repair that affects your health, or safety in the home. Please see our Financial help page: help with home repairs.
