All of our properties have passed their gas safety checks and we hold the relevant certificates on file. If you notice any changes to the gas appliances in your property, let us know straight away. Leaking gas is a fire hazard. If you smell gas, contact Transco (0800 111 999) immediately. Turn off the supply at the mains supply, and open the windows. Do not switch anything electrical on or off, including lights.
Shared houses are at the greatest risk of fires. All of our properties are fitted with smoke detectors, and larger houses will have a full fire alarm system in place. Tampering with these installations is a serious breach of contract and could put lives at risk. Exit routes from the property should be kept clear of obstructions at all times. With common sense and due care, disasters can be avoided.
We all like to think that our homes are safe places to live, but there’s no harm in taking the time to make sure that you and your home are protected. Once in the property:
What to do if you are burgled
Household refuse must be disposed of safely and responsibly. You must put your refuse in black plastic bags and secure the opening tightly. Do not over pack or they could tear and disperse onto the street.
Please find out what day your refuse is collected by the local council and put the bags out the evening prior to that date. Do not put them out earlier or they might be damaged by people or animals and rubbish will spill out and cause danger and inconvenience to neighbours or pedestrians. The City Council has very strict regulations now regarding litter and you may be prosecuted for repeated offences. Please note that if the council contact us about your refuse whilst you are in the property or after you have vacated when you leave your refuse at the end of your tenancy we will have it removed and you will be charged.
To find out when is your collection date for your rubbishes please simply Text 60066 with your HOUSE NUMBER and POSTCODE and you will receive a weekly text to remind you of your collection day and what needs to be placed out.
