In case of emergency

Repairs
If there is a repair needed, please inform us immediately so that we can act quickly to resolve this. It is a condition of your tenancy agreement to do so and failure may mean that you are held partially responsible if the delay results in increased deterioration or damage. After you have informed us of any repairs, faults or problems we will contact your landlord and act upon their instructions.
Please note: although we have a 24 hour service, only emergency repairs will be carried out within a 24 hour period. A guideline to repair time is:

.

Very urgent repairs (24-48 Hours)
Heating, hot water, major electrical faults, security issues, leaks.
Urgent repairs (48-72 Hours)
Hob, oven, radiators, serious joinery repairs, showers, fridge, freezer, minor plumbing.
Non urgent repairs (4-7 Days)
Minor electrical, washing machine, seals, tiles, window cracks, dishwasher.
If there is a fault with an appliance which is under warranty or parts are required these timescales do not apply as we are dependent on the manufacturer.

.

We will strive to have repairs carried out as quickly as possible; however the contractor appointed may set their own timescale for completing the repair depending on urgency. Please let us know if you are experiencing any abnormal delays if a contractor has been appointed. We will provide the contractor’s details if you think a repair is taking longer than necessary.
Edinburgh Letting Centre does not have power to carry out repairs without your Landlord’s permission. This, plus quotations, may add on time to the timescales above. Some landlords carry out their own repairs and there may be times where we have no control over the repair process but we will always do our best to ensure this is done as quickly as possible.
