Emergency Procedure for Tenants


Sometimes you may be faced with an emergency situation.

 

An emergency is defined as something that may harm someone, or may cause further damage to the property if left unattended. 

 
Our Property Managers can only be contacted during working hours. If you are faced with an emergency situation, and are unable to contact your Property Manager, we have listed a number of contacts who can provide you with assistance.



Break In & Damage To Glass
Contact the police and report the break in.
 
The police will give you a Police Report Number—you must report this to the office the next working day. Without obtaining the Police Report Number, the cost of replacing the glass will be invoiced to you. If there is any other damage to the property besides glass damage, this must be reported to your Property Manager the next working day.
 
You may contact the following recommended glaziers to secure the property:
Prompt Glass - 9330 5555 or 0411 872 938
Imperial Glass - 1300 721 122
 
You may instruct the glazier to forward the account directly to our office –marked attention to the Property Manager. If the glass breakage is the result of an act attributable to yourself, you may call the glazier to repair the broken glass, however payment of the invoice must be made by yourself.
