Complaints about contractors

If a contractor has not completed your maintenance in the time we gave you, or you are unhappy with the quality of the work, call the Housing Call Centre on 13 11 72 to follow this up. 

If you are still unhappy with the contractor's work or behaviour you may lodge a formal complaint. To do this, contact your local housing office.
