Lost Keys : Due to new government legislation we no longer provide a chargeable call out service for tenants locked out due to lost keys. Please be diligent and careful with your keys, ensure you obtain a second set and keep them safe with a relative or someone you trust.. Should you become locked out of your property due to misadventure or accident (and have not kept an accessible spare set), please be advised that you will need to contact a locksmith and pay for their services. You require express permission in writing from ourselves or your landlord to change locks, and must provide us with 2 copies of any new keys within 24 hours of changing locks.
Infestations : Any form of infestations should be reported directly to the local authority, these may include Rats, Mice, Fleas, Bed Bugs, Wasps & Bees, Ants etc. The local authority can be contacted by copying this link below into your internet browser ;
