An emergency repair is defined as something which could cause danger to health, residents' safety or serious damage to property. This includes for example, severe roof leaks; burst pipes; severe loss of water; blocked drains; blockage of your only toilet; complete loss of power or lighting; complete loss of heating in cold weather; dangerous electrical fault; & security following a break in.
When attending an out of hours repair, our contractor will normally be instructed to make the repair safe only, with full repair being carried out during normal opening hours.
Please only use the out of hours service for a genuine emergency repair. If you call an emergency contractor for a less serious repair, you may be charged all costs involved if we think you have acted unreasonably.
