General reporting form
- If no, and you live in a neighbourhood that is managed by another agent or housing provider, you will need to contact that company. Contact details will be on signs in your neighbourhood.
- If no, and the graffiti is not on our land, please contact the local authority who will remove it.
If the graffiti is deemed offensive, we will arrange to remove within one working day, otherwise, it could take up to four weeks.
Please note: graffiti removal might be included in a neighbourhood’s service charge. Any increase in graffiti will lead to an increase in cost to customers.
If PA Housing knows who is causing the graffiti then we can charge them the cost of removal. If you have any evidence of who is responsible then please complete our online ASB form and attach a photo if possible.
