**Coronavirus update – Please know we will do all we can to support you and your family through these extraordinary times.
We will be providing a restricted range of services following the latest government guidance on tackling the Coronavirus crisis. This means we have currently restricted repairs and maintenance to emergency and essential services only.**
Who repairs what?
Looking after your home is partly your responsibility and partly ours. Legally, as your landlord, we have to carry out certain repairs and maintain your home to a safe standard.
Before a tenancy begins, we must inspect the house and carry out any work required to make sure it is safe, secure, and wind and watertight. After you move in, we will also carry out work to keep the property in reasonable repair and inspect your home when required.
Below is a breakdown of who is responsible for repair and maintenance of various items in your home:
From April 2020, DGHP will be launching an-house repairs service which will bring a modernised service to our tenants with many benefits for everyone. More information on the new service will be available soon.
