Who to call

Please try to determine if your issue is a genuine emergency. The definition of an emergency repair is where lives and health are at immediate risk, or there is a serious risk to the property.  For example, a dripping tap can wait until our office is open; a burst pipe that is flooding your home is a genuine emergency.  In a genuine emergency the property will be left safe and more permanent repairs may be needed at a later date.

It can be inconvenient to have a maintenance problem, but you must not authorise repairs to the property, or incur unauthorised expenses without first gaining permission from VIKINGS or the landlord.  Any unauthorised work – or calling out one of our contractors out of hours in a non-emergency – will result in you being charged for the repair.
