After Hours Procedure for Tenants


WHAT TO DO IF THE OFFICE IS CLOSED
Please note that if you go ahead with a repair that IS NOT classified as an emergency, the owner is NOT obligated to pay for any expenses incurred. Additionally if any maintenance is carried out at the property and found not to be the owners responsibility but as fault by the tenant you will be held accountable for any expenses.

EMERGENCY PLAN FOR TENANTS
During your tenancy you may encounter an emergency situation.
An emergency is defined as something that may cause more damage to the property, harm someone, or may cause more damage if left unattended. As our property managers are only contactable during office hours you will need to use the following procedure.

BREAK IN OR DAMAGE TO GLASS
In the case of a break in you will need to contact the police. The police will then give you a police report number which you are required to give to the property manager as soon as possible. Without this number we cannot make an insurance claim and the cost of the repair will be at your own expense. If there is further damage besides glass damage to the property, please let the property manager know as soon as possible.
Below are the contact numbers for recommended glaziers. You may use these if you cannot get hold of the property manager.

  • South Metro Glass 9455 5835
  • Dependable Glass 9455 3069
You may instruct the glazier to forward the invoice directly to our office.
 
If the glass breakage is the result of an act attributable to yourself, you may call a glazier to repair the broken glass, but the cost of the repair will be at your own expense.
