Maintenance of communal areas in council homes

Repairs and maintenance

You can report a repair needed in a communal area to Mears. 


Mears arrange cleaning for communal areas in blocks of flats or maisonettes, and the immediate surrounding areas. The cleaning is done by Town and Country Cleaners, generally on a weekly basis.

There is a noticeboard in each block of flats we manage that will have a cleaning schedule on it. Town and Country Staff will sign this every time they visit and tick what work they have done.

You can help the cleaners by keeping communal areas free of stored items and rubbish.
