Persona Aftercare You're in safe hands

Supporting you past your move-in date

Our service to you doesn't end the day you collect your keys. With any new build home, there may be the odd teething problem – so our experts are on hand to put things right, for up to two years depending on when you moved in. 

If you spot anything you would like to discuss, give our Aftercare Team a call on 0808 196 1532 (Option 2) . From this point on, they'll be your point of contact for any snags and defects reporting.

Snags, defects... what do we mean?

A snag is something in your home that has been marked or damaged during construction. This could include scratched work surfaces, cracked tiles or minor decorative issues. 

A defect is a problem caused by a failure of workmanship in your new home, such as leaking roofs and plumbing, defective wiring or doors not closing or locking securely. 

If the fault with your home falls under the ‘defects’ category, we’ll aim to fix it for you within 30 days completely free of charge. And, if it’s an emergency repair, we’ll get to it in 24 hours or less.

It's worth checking out our hints and tips page - you'll find some really useful information on how to avoid some of the most common problems that can occur in any new build home.

When it just can't wait

We understand that some fixes are much more urgent than others. That’s why we aim to respond to the following in under 24 hours: 

  • No central heating or hot water in the winter months

  • Complete loss of power

  • Uncontainable leak

  • Risk to life or a cause of injury

  • An insecure home

  • Blocked toilet, where the toilet is the only one in your home 

In an emergency, please contact us directly on 0808 196 1532 (Option 2). If you can smell gas please contact your local Gas Board immediately, open the windows and vacate your home. .

If you have an uncontainable leak, please try to turn off your stop cock (usually located under the kitchen sink) . This can help reduce both short and long-term damage.
