Home safety and repairs

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.

If you rent your home

Your landlord must keep the property you live in safe and free from health hazards. Please see our Tenant advice page on repairs.
