COVID 19 UPDATE
4 Towers TMO are working hard in order to ensure we continue to provide essential services to residents during the COVID 19 pandemic.
In order to reduce the risk of contact between TMO staff, the office will be open on a reduced basis with only one member of staff usually present at any one time.
Our caretaking and cleaning staff are working hard in order to ensure that communal areas remain clean and safe, with particular emphasis placed on cleaning contact points such as buttons and door handles.
Our repairs provider (Wrekin Housing Trust) is presently only offering emergency repairs to residents; all non-emergency repairs will be addressed after lockdown measures have been eased.
You can phone the office in the usual way by calling 0121 426 4862. For emergency repairs you can call 01952 217 217. If you live in either Metchley, Derwent or Coniston House and you have an emergency repair related to heating or hot water, call 0121 216 3330. If you have an emergency which is not related to repairs and the office is unmanned, you can call 07719 518 104 (this line is open during office hours).
We would like to thank residents for their patience during this challenging and unprecedented time.
4 Towers TMO is working with Quinton and Oldbury foodbanks to provide free short term, emergency food parcels to individuals and families in crisis. This service is intended for those individuals who are in financial crisis, to the extent that they have insufficient means to buy food and offers help on a short-term basis. As a registered referral agency, 4 Towers TMO can issue vouchers which residents can redeem at local foodbanks, provided they meet the correct criteria. If you believe that you may be eligible and would like to apply, call the 4 Towers office to find out more.

4 Towers TMO
4 Towers was established in 2011 following an 85.5% vote in favour by tenants and leaseholders to manage their own homes transferring some responsibilities from Birmingham City Council to the tenant management organisation.
This commitment has been reconfirmed through the 2016 Continuation Ballot, where we returned an outstanding 98% in favour of remaining a TMO – with an equally impressive 85% turnout from residents.
We are always seeking new ways to reduce costs and bring benefits to our stakeholders.
If you can provide excellent service at competitive costs then please contact us to discuss your proposal!
