Property Maintenance and Repair Guidance

Working in partnership with Oxford City Council's Tenant Involvement Team and Tenant Ambassadors, we've created a Tenant's Repair and Service Maintenance Handbook which provides information on tenant property maintenance. 

We have created some repair videos to show tenants how to complete simple repair job that they can do themselves. This will help to save tenants' time on waiting at home for a callout. Check out our repair videos in the links below.

Please note: to view these videos, cookies need to be enabled.
