Report a home repair

If you are a Harrow council tenant or leaseholder and your home needs a repair job, you can report it online.

We repair and maintain:

  • your home and communal areas if you are council tenant
  • the communal areas only if you are a leaseholder

We are not responsible for all repairs and as a tenant you are expected to maintain some things for yourself. 

For a full list of repairs and responsibilities you can view our Repairs Charter.
