Due to the current Covid-19 crisis and following government easing of restrictions we are now operating an enhanced emergency repairs service where a repair:
- Is life threatening
- Will cause injury or impedes the tenants welfare
- Is a major threat to a residents security
- Will cause more than minor damage to the property.
Examples of emergency repairs (not exhaustive)
- Gas escape within the property.
- Total or partial loss of gas supply or a fire or boiler not working correctly.
- Total loss of electrical power or lighting circuits not caused by a power cut.
- Unsafe power, lighting and electrical fittings.
- Smoke alarms that are constantly sounding.
- Leaking water or heating pipe, tank or cistern.

You should not use this service unless you are sure the repair cannot wait until the next working day. During the Covid-19 crisis some repairs that are reported out of hours may be made on a make safe basis until the next working day.
You may be charged for the cost of the visit if we feel that the problem is:
- Not an emergency
- Caused by something which you may have done
- A faulty electrical appliance

All of our workers, contractors, and officials carry identity cards which they will always show to any resident before entering their homes.
Cards have a telephone number to contact us - so you can confirm the employee is genuine.
Utility companies and other organisations also operate similar identity card or password systems.
If you have any doubt about the identity of anyone calling at you home, then call us or your local police straight away. DON'T LET ANYONE IN - if we're genuine, we won't mind, whatever the weather.
