Is my repair an emergency?

An emergency is something that causes an immediate health, safety or security risk to you or anyone else. An emergency is also something that is causing substantial damage to your home. 

Examples of emergencies are:

  • An external door which won’t lock
  • An uncontainable water leak
  • Having no power
  • Exposed electrical wires, or water coming into contact with sockets or wiring
