Owner Occupiers

We offer advice, leaflets and information to help you deal with the maintenance and repair of your home.  This is available in any part of the city.

Maintenance & advice.

If you are having problems due to the disrepair of a neighbouring property:

  • We can advise you of suitable action to take

  • We can get the owner to carry our repairs on a voluntary basis

  • Where appropriate, we can serve legal notices on the owner, requesting the work to be done

You can contact the City Team by email at or by calling 0114 2734646.

As a homeowner, you are responsible for keeping your home in good repair. In certain circumstances we may provide financial help to owners whose circumstances and living conditions are poor.

Help for people affected by disability

In some cases certain grants may be available to provide adaptations to your home, to meet the needs of the disabled occupant.  Further details will be available here shortly, otherwise please contact our general enquiry line on 0114 2734646.
