Non-urgent repairs 

If you are a leaseholder you can only request repairs to communal areas. If you live in a property managed by a Co-op/Resident Management Organisation you will need to contact your managing agent.

If you are a council tenant you are responsible for some repairs within your home, find out what the council is responsible for.
