Report a repair

At THH we provide a 24 hour, seven days a week telephone service to report repair on 020 7364 5015. Outside of normal office hours (8am to 5pm) we provide a service to report repairs which are an emergency.  You can also report repairs at myth.org.uk.

 We offer a choice of three appointment time slots Monday to Friday: Morning (8am to 10.30am), mid-day (10.30am to 2.30pm) or afternoon (2.30pm to 5pm).

We will complete the appointment when we say we will and aim to complete your repair correctly on the first visit whenever we can. Please notify the HSC within 48 hours if this appointment is missed.
