Reporting repairs

You will need to tell us about any repairs that we are responsible for as soon as possible after you notice a problem.

We are not responsible for repairs unless we are aware of them and the fault may become worse if it is not dealt with promptly.

You can report repairs via the following ways:

  • Telephone: Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am to 5pm 0208 800 9606 and then select the repairs reporting option.
  • By email at – please provide a brief description and attached any photos if you can to assist us
  • You can also report repairs by logging into SeeMyData – more details here

In certain cases it may be necessary to inspect the defect before issuing a repair order. Our contractors will contact you to arrange an appointment, this should happen within 2 working days following our issuing of a works order.  You must allow IDS and its contractors reasonable access to inspect and carry out the repair.

It is your responsibility to clear the area of work for the contractor to carry out the repair, if the contractor has to move furniture or personal belongings it will be at your own risk, IDS or the contractor will be unable to take responsibility for any damage caused in such circumstances

If your repair request is for a repair for which IDS is not responsible, then our repairs team will inform you of this. You may have the option to pay IDS to arrange such repairs for you.
