Repairs and maintenance

Silva Homes repairs, maintains and improves all its properties. We have an in-house repairs team and use trusted contractors when needed.

We are dedicated to providing a good quality, cost effective service in a professional manner.

We look after homes in many ways:

  • Carrying out repairs when they are reported to us
  • Carrying out planned maintenance work to stop problems before they happen
  • Carrying out repairs to properties when they are empty before a new tenant moves in, to meet our clear, clean and safe standards.

There are some jobs that we will do and will charge for. Please click here for information on rechargeable repairs for details.


When you report a repair, we will agree an appointment time when the repair can be carried out, which is convenient for you. We always try to be flexible, for example to avoid school run times. For certain repairs and gas servicing, we offer appointments for evenings and Saturday mornings. We also offer first or last appointments in mornings and afternoons. The appointment slots we offer to carry out repairs are:
