Iceni Homes only manage properties within the first twelve months of the build whilst they are under their defect liability cover with the builder. Please contact your landlord to report any faults outside of this timescale.
Have you ever flushed sanitary products, nappies or wipes down the WC?
If yes, you should only flush toilet paper down your WC. Blockages caused by household waste is not a defect. Please contact a plumber to resolve. You can also download ‘How to Look After Your Sink and Loo‘ for further guidance.
If no, blocked WCs are not normally considered defects; unless circumstances dictate. Please contact us so we can discuss this further with you.
Check the fuse board to see if the fuse has tripped.
If unresolved, try the appliance in another available socket. If it does, please contact us.
If the appliance isn’t working in another socket your appliance may be faulty. Please arrange for this to be inspected and replaced.

During the building construction, a considerable amount of water is used e.g. building walls, laying concrete etc. The moisture contained in the fabric of the building will dry out gradually within approximately the first 12 months of occupation. Please refer to your welcome pack for guidance on how to minimise condensation within your home.
