Emergency Arrangements for your property during the Easter break: A message from Property Department


Hopefully you will not need this information and will spend a happy Easter. But, if you should have a real emergency at your property that does not involve your boiler, plumbing, electrics or drainage, then please call the Property Line 01273 425683 and leave a message including your name, property, contact number and brief details of the problem. An on-call surveyor will be picking up messages on a regular basis and will get back to you.
Otherwise you may ring contractors direct as follows:


Gas/Oil Heating: Paynes Heating & Plumbing Services | 01825 891720
Plumbing: Paine Manwaring | 07793 580250 Paynes | 01825 891720
Drains: Blockbusters | 0800 136658


Mostly, the same procedure will be in place, with an on-call engineer checking regularly for messages, so please leave a message with the details and someone will get back to you.
