If you have been sent this email by mistake please disregard this.

Leave the Heating On

Leave the heating on low and ask a reliable friend or neighbour to make regular visits to the property to ensure that all is well.

Water System Drain Down

If you are away for more than a few days we can arrange for our heating contractor to carry out the draining down and refilling of the system. The cost will be your responsibility, if you would like us to arrange this, please contact us as soon as possible. Please do not drain down the system yourself.

Whilst this is general advice, the requirements of each individual property may be slightly different. If you are unsure how to take appropriate measures to protect the property whilst you are away please do not hesitate to contact us.

In the event of an emergency when our office is closed please call one of our contractors below who will provide emergency cover. We must emphasize this is purely for emergencies only. They will not attend to carry out non-urgent repairs, these types of problems will be dealt with upon our return to the office.

We are sure that you will use your discretion at this time, please note if the contractors are called out and it is proved not to be an emergency then you will be responsible for the cost.

Before calling out one of these contractors, please check your tenancy paperwork to ensure that the landlord has not specified other contractors or has British Gas cover.
