How do I use this service?
Our approach is to offer advice and assistance to owners, landlords and tenants.
We encourage tenants to report any defects or problems with their accommodation to their landlord or managing agent first but if this does not result in the matter being dealt with satisfactorily, please contact the Housing & Public Protection Service. We aim to make our initial response within 3 working days.
