Updates on our service due to Coronavirus

Housing repairs
: We will only be carrying out urgent or emergency council housing repairs until further notice.

These include:

•  Heating and hot water
•  Water leaks
•  Electrical issues
•  Health and safety works
•  Sanitary plumbing
•  Home security issues

Non-essential repairs such as decorating, plastering, adjusting doors or non-emergency surveys will temporarily be put on hold. We are unfortunately not able to accept any new non-essential repair requests at this time.

For tenants requesting an urgent repair, please be advised that our repair customer service staff will ask if anyone in your household is self-isolating. This is to ensure we have adequate measures in place to avoid the spread of the virus and to protect our tenants, staff and contractors.

Apply for a council or housing association home: Uttlesford HomeOption property advertisements have currently been suspended until further notice. At this time there are no properties available to express an interest in. Please refer to the Housing Options and Homelessness frequently asked questions or contact Housing Options if you are looking for further advice.
