Contact us


We now only take calls about issues that aren’t urgent between 9am and 3pm, weekdays. Outside of these times, you will be directed to alternative ways to contact us or asked to call back during these hours.

If you have an emergency or need a very urgent repair attending to, you can call us anytime. Our phone lines are staffed between 8am and 5pm and there are arrangements for out-of-hours emergencies.


If you need to report a repair, the best way is to use MyAccount. 

For any other queries, you can use the forms on this page or send us a message.

What’s the best way to contact Derby Homes?

General information

You should be able to find the answer to most questions right here on our website. This should be your first stop to help you with any general queries you have about your tenancy and our services. You'll also find links to download and read public reports from our board meetings. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for up-to-the-minute information.

Requesting services (non-urgent)

Contacting us online means you can do it in your own time, without having to call us. My Account lets you check the important things to do with your tenancy, like rent and repairs. For everything else, use the web forms or email us.

Calling us directly

You should really only need to call us if you have an urgent repair, if there is an emergency or if you’re unable to use our website for some reason.

Urgent repairs

These include things like total or partial loss of services (electric, gas, water); unsafe electrical sockets or fittings; blocked toilet, sink, bath or basin (with no others available); leaks; a loose handrail; and unsecure windows, doors or locks or where a door entry phone is not working.

Urgent Housing Advice

This includes things like discussing rent arrears, payment agreements, benefits advice and court action/evictions, but also more serious anti-social behaviour and things that mean your tenancy may be at risk.
