Help Guide for Residents

On this page you can find important contact details if you have a problem with your home, concerns about public or communal areas, parking issues or crime.  There are also some other useful contact numbers.

If you are a Clarion Housing Group resident (either tenant or shared ownership), and you have any problem with your home from internal plumbing to external maintenance you should call them on 0300 100 0303. This is also the number to call if you have any other enquiries such as issues with rent.

Please note that Clarion Housing Group was formerly known as Affinity Sutton.  Any changes to contact details will be added in due course.

If you are a homeowner and you have a problem with the fabric of your home or internal fixtures and fittings supplied by Drew Smith (Linden), and you are in the first two years of your ownership, you should contact Drew Smith’s Customer Service Team via email: customercare@drewsmith.co.uk. If you have an out-of hours emergency, such as a major plumbing leak or lock failure, call 0800 975 5938.

Any outstanding works to your new home will be passed to Drew Smith by Linden and you will need to contact them for further updates and assistance.

If you are unhappy with the response of Customer Services, you should notify the Residents’ Association.

Outside the two year warranty period but inside the 10 year NHBC guarantee, homeowners with defects in the external fabric of the building can contact NHBC on 0800 03506422 for advice on how to proceed.

If your heating or hot water supply has failed, first check with neighbours to see if it is a local area fault or specific to your residence. Regardless of whether it is local or specific report the fault first to Veolia on 01243 791880 but please report if others are affected as well as you. If you have a problem inside your property such as a leak from the unit where your meter is and it requires the attendance of a maintenance engineer, please also contact Veolia on the same number above. In the case of an area fault, again the same number applies. Alternatively you can use the following email address to register the problem: site.monitoring@veolia.com

If you have a query regarding your bills, meter readings, payments and anything else to do with your billing account, please call ista on 01223 874938.

E-mail addresses are as follows:

Billing – billing@graylingwellenergy.co.uk

Registration enquiries – registrations@graylingwellenergy.co.uk

General queries – graylingwellenergy@gallifordtry.co.uk

Grange Management is responsible for all those areas used by more than one household (such as stairwells) as well as roadways, paths, car parks, grounds and gardens to the front of properties not enclosed by fencing. Responsibilities also include general services such as the TV signal network (but not heating or hot water).  The main office number is 01483 411770.

Grange Management will assist with, for example, bike stores (see more below regarding keys), window cleaning issues and all work done by the current groundskeepers – SCS.

For general enquiries or fault reports such as repair or maintenance issues contact Deborah Nelson– deborah.nelson@grangemanagement.com or call 01483 411710.

For serious issues needing a fast response, please copy your enquiry to Trudie Hudson at trudie.hudson@grangemanagement.com .

Residents who wish to use a bike store will need to apply for a key.  They should contact Deborah or the main office initially (see above) and will need to provide proof of residence.   If they are a sub tenant, this can be the front page of their tenancy agreement. They will have to sign a form agreeing to return the key and accepting responsibility for lost keys. Once the signed form is received, they will be sent a key. Departing tenants must leave the keys behind and this is also captured in the agreement. Where the landlord is resident in the UK, they must also sign the form.

If you wish to appeal a parking ticket (PCN) or report issues of abuse of allocated parking bays, visitor bays or visitor permits call CPM (Car Park Management) on 0845 463 5050.  You can also report abuse, for example an unauthorised car parked in your allocated space, via the CPM website.

There is more information on parking at Graylingwell on the Hot Topics page of the website.

In addition, such offences should be reported to the Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) team by phoning 101 ext. 580299 or emailing arunandchichester.localteam@sussex.pnn.police.uk.  You can also report crime by going to the Sussex Police “report online” page
