URGENT REPAIR INFORMATION

 

There may be a time during your tenancy when you have maintenance that requires urgent action and a tradesperson will be needed after hours.

 

In your 'Renting a home - a guide for tenants' booklet that was provided to you at the beginning of your tenancy on page 20 it discusses urgent repairs.

 

What is an Urgent Repair and Can It Wait?

  • a burst water service

Before You Organise Your Own Repairs

 

If a fault or urgent repair is required after hours these calls are very expensive therefore please be 100% sure that it is a real emergency or urgent repair otherwise you may find yourself liable for the entire cost of the after hours call out for the repair. eg - one burner on cook top not working or a power point that is not working but also not dangerous.  These examples do not constitute as urgent repairs and can wait until the next day.
