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.
Problems with your home
If you are an Affinity Sutton resident and you have any problem with your house from internal plumbing to external maintenance you should call Affinity Sutton 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 Affinity Sutton is now known as Clarion Housing Group. 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 house or internal fixtures and fittings supplied by Linden, and you are in the first two years of your ownership, you should contact Linden Customer Services on 01483 705 100 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . If you have an out-of hours emergency, such as a major plumbing leak or lock failure, call 0800 975 5938.
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.
Problems with heating and hot water
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: email@example.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 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration enquiries – email@example.com
General queries – firstname.lastname@example.org

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, window cleaning issues and all work done by the current groundskeepers – SCS.

If you see a burglary, an assault or any other serious crime in progress dial 999.
If you see anti-social behaviour such as vandalism or criminal damage, report it to the police by calling 101. This number should also be used for reporting anti-social behaviour such as persistent high levels of noise from neighbours.
