Emergency Repairs include:
• A loss of water
• A burst pipe
• Flooding
• Severe storm damage
• Total loss of the electricity supply
• A major fault with the electricity supply
• An unsafe electrical fitting
• A breach of security to outside doors and windows
• A loss of gas supply (where this exists)
• A gas leak
• A blocked flue
• A blocked rubbish chute
• A blockage in the main drains, soil pipe or toilet (if there is no other toilet in your home)
• Space heating or hot water loss for elderly or vulnerable customers
• Lift failure
• A community alarm or call system failure
• Fire damage
• Offensive or racist graffiti
• Any other event that needs immediate action to ensure your safety or security

Please note that you may be charged a call out fee if:
