A local landlord is launching weekly housing surgeries to answer tenant queries.

From next week East Durham Homes will be holding regular two-hour drop-ins at Durham County Council’s Customer Access Point in St Johns Square, Seaham.

Customers can call in on Mondays and Thursdays between 10am and 12pm; and Wednesdays between 2pm and 4pm to talk to an East Durham Homes officer about their rent, repairs, antisocial behaviour concerns, and find out about other support services.

Gary Lormor, Customer Services Manager, said: “These informal sessions are a great way for people to talk to one of our advisers face to face if they are in the Seaham area.”
