The following problems are examples of the type of situation that would be considered as emergencies:

  • total loss of electric power; (if electrics go off, then first check the fuse board to see if the electrics have tripped)unsafe, broken or missing electrical fitting (not simply defective) comprising a dangerous fault that is immediately life threatening
  • total loss of gas supply;gas leak on the property side of the meter;blocked, damaged or defective flue to an open fire or gas appliance;total loss of space heating or water heating (between 1 November and 31 March only)
  • for those with special needs such as disabled, young baby etc

NON EMERGENCY REQUESTS. Lost keys, locking yourself out, requests for assistance of a routine nature and similar out of hours do not constitute an emergency and should be dealt with on a common sense self-help basis as you would with your own property. For example, calling out a 24 hour locksmith if locked out.

We don’t wish to be unhelpful but non-emergency requests to Belvoir for out-of-hours assistance should be avoided (as should last minute problems other than for raising our awareness). No guarantee is given that a call of this nature will result in a same-day response as it may depend on other factors. Call-outs may be charged at a rate of £30 per hour or part thereof, depending on the nature of any such request.
