ADVICE TO CURRENT TENANTS
There is no out of hours emergency repair service unless you have been specifically advised of a policy in place for your property. Faults are classified as either routine or emergency. An emergency is something that would immediately endanger life or property if not treated promptly. If an emergency occurs out of normal office hours, during holiday periods or otherwise, it should be handled in accordance with the tenancy documentation provided at the start of the tenancy. Routine repairs should be reported to us for attention during normal office hours. Please see below for more information about emergencies and boiler problems.
