The Housing Executive home repair

We are responsible for completing most repairs to tenants’ homes. It’s important that you report repairs to us straight away, so we can put the problem right as quickly as possible. Please be assured that we are doing all that we can to complete all repairs as quickly as possible and return to normal levels of service. We continue to work through the repairs that were placed on hold or delayed during the national lockdowns and Covid-19 restrictions. If you are reporting repairs we are sorry that you may need to wait for longer than usual to have them completed.

If you rent your home and apply to your local authority for help with home improvements, you’ll need to get your landlord’s permission before the local authority will agree to help you.

In some cases, your landlord might be responsible for making the changes.
