All maintenance issues should be reported to our maintenance team either by email to email@example.com or by phone 0141 295 0051 if possible within normal office hours which are Monday-Thursday, 9.30am-5.00pm & Friday, 9.30am-4.00pm.
An answering machine service will be in operation when the office is closed and will be monitored on a regular basis between 9am to 8pm.
Out with normal office hours we operate an out of hours emergency system which is monitored 7 days a week 9 am to 8 pm. For this please contact the maintenance line on 0141 295 0051 (Option 2) and leave a voicemail with your property address and a brief description of the issue you are having. Someone will get back to you as soon as possible if it is an emergency and if not, we will follow up with you the following working day. PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT A 24 HOUR SERVICE AND A COMMON-SENSE APPROACH SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED WHEN HELP IS NOT AVAILABLE. Before calling the maintenance team, please read below:
If you smell gas call National Gas Emergency 0800 111 999
Central Heating & Hot Water
Loss of heating during summer months is not deemed to be an emergency.
You may have a back-up immersion heater on your hot water tank or an electric shower for hot water.
If you have a combi boiler, please check to make sure the water pressure is sitting at 1–1.5 bar. If it is not, please top the water pressure up to this level and reset the boiler. If you need help with topping up an internet search of the boiler can be helpful. Please be careful that you turn off the water valve after it reaches the desired pressure as failure to do so can result in damage to the boiler.
If you require an engineer, call our maintenance team on 0141 295 0051. Please note that if the boiler requires a part, then a visit will be scheduled for the next working day as the suppliers will be closed.
Please note while we try our best to have a contactor out as soon as possible it is not always feasible to have one out the same day.
