How to report a repair
It’s important that you look after your home and let us know as soon as possible if anything goes wrong.
You can report a repair 24/7 on MyAdvance or you can contact the Customer Services Team on: 0333 012 4307 Monday to Friday (from 8.30am to 4.30pm).
You can request a call-back during office opening hours and we will call you back at no cost to yourself. The team will take the details of your repair and arrange an appointment at a mutually convenient time; making it easier for you to plan your time.
Our staff will take details of the nature of the problem and check that we have an up-to-date number on which to contact you. Please make our Customer Service Advisors aware of any times you are not available so we can inform the operative carrying out your repair.
Our contractor’s may call without an appointment if they are in the area but will only carry out the repair if it is convenient for you.
Depending on the repair, it will be completed within the following timescales:
- Emergency Repairs within 24hrs

Advance will complete repairs in the times set out above and where possible, we will try to complete the repair even sooner.
