When reporting a repair, please give us as much information as possible about the repair required; the nature of the problem, where it is located, what happened (include a photo if possible); when you will be available to give access to the contractor and your contact details.

We will inform you of the work we have ordered, the timescale within which we will complete the repair and the name of the contractor who will carry out the work.

Pre - inspections
We will pre-inspect repairs were the amount of work required has a significant cost, were the report is unclear and others selected by the Maintenance Officer / Assistant Officer.
Reporting an Emergency Repair Out of Hours
If you have a repair which cannot wait until the office opens then you should contact our out of hours service by phoning 0141 554 2406 and press 1.
Provide details of the repair and the call handler will arrange for a tradesman to call.
The tradesperson will attend your home within 2 hours so you must stay in until the contractor attends, as the contractor may not be in position to advise you in advance of their arrival.
The out of hours service operates between 5pm and 9am Monday to Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday and all day on public holidays. If you make arrangements for a contractor to call either as an emergency or any other repair and you do not give access, you will be recharged the cost of the contractor’s time. More information can be found on emergency repairs here.
Please note that the out of hours repair service is for emergencies only.
