    Maintaining your home 

    To make sure your home is safe and well maintained, we need you to work with us to report repairs that we are responsible for. You need to look after your home and do the repairs that you are responsible for. 

    If you are a shared owner or leaseholder, you can find out more here. 

    If you have a repair, you can book a repair using our web form, by emailing or calling 0800 169 1122. Call times may be longer than usual, so unless your repair is urgent, please use one of our online methods to save you waiting.

    Report a repair

    • Emergency Repairs

      This priority is used when there is an immediate risk to your health or security or serious damage to your home. We will make it safe but may have to return to finish the repair at a later date.

      Target response time: By the end of the next day

    • Urgent Repairs

      This priority is used where there is a risk to the resident’s health or security.

      Target response times: within three full days.

    • Routine Repairs

      This is used for most standard repairs where there is no risk to health or security. These repairs will be completed by appointment made with you.


    • Planned Repairs

      Some repairs involving large scale replacement or improvement work may by scheduled outside routine repairs.

    • Further Works

      If we identify further work during your repair, we will advise you when these will be completed.

    You can also view our full Maintaining Your Home standard.


    When you report a repair we will either give you an appointment time or our contractor will call with a time slot that suits you. 

    Always ask for proof of identity before letting anyone into your home. This includes staff from West Kent and anyone working on our behalf. If you’re not sure just give us a call.

    We're reviewing how we compensate and charge for missed repair appointments. Missed appointment charges and payments are suspended while we carry out this review.

    Out of hours

    If you report a repair outside our normal working hours, you’ll get help with your emergency and once it's been made safe (and if necessary), we can follow this up with you when we re-open.

    Our out of hours is a make safe service, not a full repair one. This may mean that substitutes such as bottled water or fan heaters are provided until we reopen. You can see what we class as an emergency in our Maintaining your Home standard.
