Report a defect for new build homes

If you live in a newly-built home, repairs to your property are known as defect repairs. 

If your home was built within the last year and has a problem, you need to complete the form below.
All defect repairs are carried out by the company who built your new home. 

Examples of non-emergency defects (faults) your property may have include:

  • Shower screen leaking
  • Problems with light fittings and sockets
  • Faulty taps
  • Problems with electric shower
  • Door easing/sticking
  • External lighting not working.

What if I have an emergency defect repair?

An emergency repair is to fix an issue that presents an immediate danger to your health or the public’s safety. It could also be a security issue or a problem that may lead to serious damage to the property.

Please call us on 0800 111 4013 (press 3) if you have an emergency. If you suspect a gas leak, please call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.

Cosmetic defect repairs may include:
