Urgent Emegency Repairs
First we need to define what an urgent emergency repair is.
Sometimes certain repairs are a major inconvenience and have a sense of urgency about them. For instance you have run out of hot water due to a faulty hot water system. Yes this is an inconvenience that needs to be dealt with promptly; however not an emergency.
On the other hand perhaps you have no water at all; now that is far more serious!
You could actually summarise the definition of an urgent emergency repair in just two statements:
- A danger to yourself or to other people within the vicinity of your leased property
- A danger to the landlord's property or danger of further damage to the landlord's property
The following are examples of emergencies previously summarised in the two statements above:
- A serious roof leak
- A burst water pipe
- An appliance or fixture that is causing a substantial waste of water
- Flooding or serious flood damage
- A gas leak
- A dangerous electrical fault or exposed electrical wiring
- Serious storm damage
- Serious fire damage
