Outside our business hours which are Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, you are permitted to organise emergency repairs for Essential Services directly with our preferred contractors below as our property managers will usually not be contactable. Please note that if you arrange repairs that are not deemed an emergency for essential services, you will be responsible for payment of the account.
The following items are considered ESSENTIAL SERVICES as per the Residential Tenancies Act 1989 and include repairs to:
- a burst water service,
- gas leaks,
- broken hot water system,
- sewerage leaks or
- dangerous electrical faults.
Essential services require arrangements are to be made within 24 hours. This does not mean the item must be repaired during this time frame, but a repair person must be contacted and booked.
There are also items which are considered URGENT REPAIRS. These are NOT an essential service, but might cause damage to the premises, injure a person or cause undue hardship or inconvenience to the tenant/s.
If you do need to report urgent repairs, please email your property manager or log the maintenance along with photos in the Maintenance Manager Tenant App.
The landlord has 48 hours to make arrangements for Urgent Repairs. This does not mean the item must be repaired during this time frame, but a repair person must be contacted and booked.
It is important for tenants to troubleshoot items before calling trades to avoid call-outs fees being charged to them if it is a simple fix.
Please ensure you contact your Service Provider prior to ensure there are no service disruptions which have caused your fault. This means the trades would be unable to repair the issue and you would be required to pay their call-out fee.

Locked Yourself out?… This is unfortunately not an emergency
If you have locked yourself out of your property during business hours between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, please call your Property Manager to confirm if our set of keys are in the office. If keys are available, you can collect them from our office at 132 Edward St Perth, or make arrangements with us to have someone collect these on your behalf.
If you lock yourself out outside of business hours you would need to wait until we are open or organise a locksmith to attend at your expense.
