Who to contact in an emergency
What is an emergency?
A repair will be treated as an emergency where there is an imminent and severe risk of danger or harm to your home, residents or the public. We will attend to emergency repairs within 24 hours of receiving the call reporting it. In the case of people being trapped in a lift we will attend within four hours.
To report a gas leak or total loss of electricity or water supply, you’ll need to speak to the relevant contact(s) below.
If you smell gas, please phone the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999 immediately.
Do not use anything electrical or anything with a naked flame until they have told you it is safe to do so.
This is a free service.
Please check with the utility provider to ensure there is not a power cut in your area. Check with a neighbour to see if they are experiencing the same problem. If we attend and the fault is caused by an appliance you will be recharged for the visit.
To check if there is a power cut in your area, phone the fault emergency service on 0800 783 8838.
We will not visit you if the power loss is as a result of a power cut or you not having credit on your electricity meter or key card.
We will attend as an emergency where there is a total loss of electricity that is not caused by a power outage from the utility provider, or by faulty appliances.
