How to report a repair

Report repairs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Important notice

We all know how inconvenient it is when things go wrong at home, that's why our repairs service is always open. You don't have to wait until normal office hours to report a repair:

You can access our online repair reporting tool by logging into your My Southwark account and clicking on ‘My Housing Services’ link. You will need to enter the following: 

  • Your surname (must match the surname on your lease or tenancy agreement) 
  • Rent or service charge account number 
  • Date of birth (tenants) / PIN (homeowners) 

You will only need to provide these details once. If you have previously accessed any other service within ‘My Housing Services’ portal (such as rent or service charge account), you will not need to provide these details again. 

If you have issues with registering for a My Southwark account, please see our help page. You can find helpful advice on what to do if you are using this service for the first time in our guide

Convenient appointment times 

Our appointment times are flexible, we offer many evening and weekend appointments for heating, hot water and maintenance work - all you need to do is ask if it is possible to have an evening or weekend appointment when you report the repair and we will try and find the most convenient time for you.  

Emergency repairs 

If your repair is an emergency and cannot wait, please refer to our emergency repairs policy
