Disrepair Claims

Important Information



We are aware of companies operating in the District to encourage Council tenants to make disrepair claims and seek compensation. The legal costs of these claims can be very high and result in less money being available for vital services such as repairs and home improvements.

These companies do not always operate in the best interests of tenants and we would encourage anyone who is thinking of making a disrepair claim, to contact us first. We can work with you to sort out any outstanding repair problems.

You can also contact Derbyshire Law Centre on 01246 550674 who offer free and impartial advice about a potential claim.

ID Badges

We encourage our customers to remain vigilant about cold callers and do not allow anyone access to their home without checking their identification.

Rykneld Homes staff will always carry ID badges - please make sure you check this and if you have any concerns about the identity of anyone claiming to be from Rykneld Homes, please call us on 01246 217670.
