Repair to pavement causing water to pool into our wall

Reported in the Pavement defect category anonymously at 15:32, Tue 13 February 2018

Sent to Bromley Council 3 minutes later

Pavement has been repaired outside our house (35 Hampden Ave, BR3) due to tree roots. Problem is the tarmac-ing is not level and is sloped so that it drains towards our property and settles with nowhere to run off. This is causing water to pool into our wall (See pics) This is an issue as we've just spent a lot of money on new wall and we're about to paint it. If this is not rectified it will soak into our wall and cause significant damage. The repair has not been done well and needs looking at again please.
