Arranging a repair

From time to time faults may develop in your home and we need your help to repair them as quickly as possible.

Tell us about the fault

Report the fault in any one of the following ways:

  • Call us on 01738 630738 during office hours.
  • Come in and tell us in person at our office at 5 Fairfield Avenue, Perth PH1 2TF during office hours.
  • Email us at repairs@fha.scot (we recommend you do not use email to report emergency repairs).
  • If you repair is regarding your Gas Heating please contact Gas Call directly on 0141 766 3333

We will need the following information for the fault:

  • Your name
  • Address
  • Description of fault
  • Contact telephone number and email address

What happens next?

Our staff will advise you of the repair priority and target time. Repairs are classified as:

  • Emergency / Qualifying: Four-hour response and complete in 24 hours
  • Urgent: Three working days
  • Standard: Ten working days

Where possible we will offer you a morning (AM) 8.45 am to 12.30pm or afternoon (PM) 12.30pm to 4.30pm appointment on a weekday of your choice

The contractor will then visit you at the given time to complete the repair. If a repair is classed as an emergency/qualifying our contractors will attend within four hours, so you must stay in the home for them.

Gas Safety

As a Landlord we have a duty of care to our tenants. We have a legal duty to repair and maintain gas pipework, flues and appliances in a safe condition, to carry out an annual gas safety check on each appliance and flue, and to keep a record of each safety check. This is to ensure that your system is operating correctly and safely.

Our contractor Gas Call currently carry out gas safety checks on a 10 month cycle. It is essential that you allow the Engineers access to do this work.

Our contractor will carry out an initial visit, if you are not at home, they will leave you a card saying that they called. They will then send you a letter within a few days with a new date for their engineer to attend.

The engineer will try 3 times to carry out the service. If you have not given them access by the 3rd visit, we will cap your meter if it is external and you will be recharged for this.  We will take further action if you have an internal meter by gaining access into the property and you will be recharged for this 4th visit.
