Impact of Covid-19 on our repairs service
Throughout the pandemic, we’ve consistently reviewed the latest Government advice and followed it carefully. Our priority remains to put the safety of you and our employees first. Due to the latest national lockdown we’re currently only offering an emergency repairs service.
This means we’ll continue to carry out anything that poses an imminent threat to life, danger of serious injury or major damage to the property. This includes no heating or hot water, total loss of power, major leaks, broken toilets (if no other toilet), blocked drains and major structural damage.
Planned maintenance work will be put on hold, however we’ll continue to carry out critical Health and Safety activities, including gas safety checks and electrical testing. If we contact you about either of these things, it’s important you allow us access to your home so we can complete them for your own safety.
Our employees and contractors follow the latest Government & Public Health England guidance when entering homes to make sure they carry out their work as safely as possible.
Booking an emergency repair: our online repairs appointment booking system is temporarily closed. To book an emergency repair, call 0800 032 2433.
If you or anyone in your household has symptoms of Coronavirus or you’re self-isolating or shielding, please let us know when you book an emergency repair or before any other type of appointment, such as gas servicing.
