Out of hours emergencies

Who to call about your emergency repair depends on where you live and which landlord owns the home you live in. If you are not sure who owns your home, you should check your tenancy agreement.

Please do not call these emergency numbers if your repair is not a genuine emergency. Wait until the next working day to call your normal repairs number.
