isos-drilling-2-smallEvery repair is given a priority code which will depend on the nature of the fault and the possible risk to health and safety. From the priority code, you will be able to get an indication of how quickly the repair will be carried out. The table below shows the repair categories which we have, including an example of what type of repair each category could cover.

Priority Target completion time
Emergency Attend by appointment within 24 Hours   These are repairs that could affect a tenants Health and Safety or cause serious damage to the property e.g. total electrical failure or burst pipes
Standard Attend by appointment within 20 Working Days   These are repairs that can generally be left without causing serious inconvenience to the tenant or causing damage to the structure of the building e.g. dripping tap or replacement kitchen drawer
Programmed Attend by appointment within 60 Working Days These are repairs that can be packaged together to form a small programme of works e.g. fencing repairs or replacements

Whilst BCT are responsible for most repairs to your home, some repairs are the tenants own responsibility, under the terms of your tenancy agreement. For example, if you lost your keys and we had to change your door locks, you would be charged for this work. If we know the repair being reported is chargeable, we will tell you.
