Report a Repair


For ACHL customers who live in lockdown affected areas, maintenance will be conducting Emergency and Urgent works only. This will be until such time the lockdown has been lifted.

If any Emergency and Urgent works are required, ACHL will do the neccessary COVID-19 checks before any works commence as per our normal process.

All other works will resume when lockdown has been lifted and it is safe to do so.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this difficult time.

If you have any questions, please contact our Call Centre on 1300 245 468.

How can I report a repair?

ACHL relies on its tenants to lodge a repair request to be able to undertake any repair and maintenance work. Tenants should report any repair, however big or small directly to our Customer Service Centre, it is your responsibility to notify ACHL as soon as you are aware of a maintenance issue. This is because if it isn’t reported the issue may cause further damage to your home.

You should report a repair request as advised during the tenancy sign up process. Should you have any issues then please contact your Housing Officer.

ACHL’s business hours are 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday – Friday.

Outside of these business hours, we will process emergency repair requests only. Any requests that are not considered emergency will be processed on the following business day.
