Welcome to the House Hunt maintenance page, we assume you have a maintenance related issue?

Firstly do not worry or panic this is normal  - you may come across maintenance queries at any property no matter how well your property is looked after. For this reason we have a designated maintenance team in our Selly Oak branch to look after any issues raised, you can simply report any issue by simply emailing our maintenance team - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please refrain from calling into the office to raise maintenance - as you will simply be requested to put your query/request in writing to the email address stated above by our admin team, who as much as they would want to assist you, are not a part of the maintenance team.

If jobs are reported to House Hunt in any other form this will result in delays and ultimately you will be redirected to reporting your issue via email, so please read this page carefully. 

If you do come across an emergency (out of working hours)  simply call our office line on 0121 448 8992 and our emergency contact number will be provided on our answer machine. Please understand you should only contact our emergency line for anything that can't wait until the following morning, such as heavy leaks, security issues and anything relating to your safety. If you contact the out-of-hours emergency line for non-emergencies, you may be charged.
