Emergency Contact Numbers for Tenants

Please note for you in case of the need for an “emergency repairs” procedure that shall be in operation during the Christmas period, whilst the offices are closed. 

For EMERGENCY maintenance issues - Oakwood Property Services 01276 504031For gas escapes - British Gas Emergency Services - 0800 111 999

For electrical problems - Southern Electric – 0845 770 8090

For water leaks - South East Water – 0800 028 3399

Please be advised that maintenance companies are charging in excess of £300.00 per hour for call-outs during the holiday period. As a guide, we suggest the following would need action and then non-urgent repairs should be reported to us when we return. 

. Gas escapes.

. Simultaneous & complete loss of both hot water and heating.

. Complete electrical failure at the property.

. Water escape, likely to cause serious damage to the property. 

We would also like to advise you that should you call out a contractor you may be responsible for the bill if it is deemed not to be an emergency repair as listed above. 

Please note all appliance break downs WILL NOT be deemed as an emergency.

For total loss of power please check with a neighbour in the first instance to establish whether there is a fault in the road.

General Advisory Note

To minimise the risk of burst and frozen pipes it is essential that the heating is left on constant at around 12-15 degrees. If you are away from the property over the holiday period, we would additionally suggest that loft hatches are left open to allow warm air to circulate.
