  • How do I book a repair?

    From 1 February our improved repairs online tool will be live through your RHP online account, enabling you to request and track repairs at any time, on any device.

    You can also request a repair by calling 0800 032 2433.

    Through repairs online, you can:

    • request a repair for routine jobs
    • request, change, and cancel appointments
    • view the repairs you’ve requested online
    • view two years’ worth of repairs history
    • watch ‘how-to’ videos for common repairs that are your responsibility.

    Any repairs you request online will be confirmed within two working days by text message. In some instances, we might need to call to discuss requests in more detail.

    You should still call us in these situations:

    • emergencies
    • gas, heating, and hot water issues
    • damp & mould queries (if you're experiencing mould, please call us right away to make our dedicated damp & mould team aware)
    • updates on repairs you’ve already told us about - requesting them online would cause a duplicate in our system, and won't provide you with the help you need
    • arranging follow-up work.
