EMERGENCY REPAIRS

If you experience a problem outside of office hours please follow the steps below:-

Gas - if you smell gas immediately evacuate the property and then contact National Grid Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999. After that you must report this issue by telephone to us when our offices reopen. 

Fire - if there is a fire in the property under no circumstances should you try and put it out yourself. Evacuate the property, call 999 and then report this by telephone on 0333 242 3233. 

Loss of Electrical Power or Lighting:-

1) Check your fuse box or consumer unit to see if circuit breakers require resetting

2) Check that the loss of power is not because of a general power cut, unpaid bills or failure to pay for connection

If these steps do not resolve the problem please contact our out of hours team by telephone on 0333 242 3233

No heating or hot water:-

1) Check that the boiler and electricity are both on

2) Check the thermostat is not turned down or off

3) Reset the boiler using the reset button (use your manual for specific instructions)
