Repairs priorities and appointments

Our repairs priorities are as follows:

  • If it’s an emergency repair we will attend within 24 hours of it being reported, and will attempt to complete the repair on our first visit.
  • If it’s an agreed appointment we will offer an appointment which suits the resident and that we can keep within 28 days.
  • If it’s a planned repair we will inspect within 28 days, and tell the resident at the inspection when the job will be carried out.
  • Repairs for other services have different timescales.

We also have new standard weekday appointment slots:

  • Early morning between 8am and 11am
  • Late morning between 10am and 1pm
  • Early afternoon between 12pm and 4pm
  • Late afternoon between 4pm and 6pm

Building trades apprenticeships

Almost 50, who are now fully qualified, started their careers as Haringey apprentices. The apprenticeship scheme started in the mid seventies.
