Q. What constitutes an emergency?
A sudden and unforeseen incident in your home, which immediately:
i) exposes you or a third party to a risk to health or,
ii) creates a risk of loss or damage to your home or makes it uninhabitable
Q. Does this include accidental damage to my property by me or anyone else?
No, this cover is only for emergency breakdown or defect issues only.
Q. How quickly will a Home Emergency contractor get to me?
On average, our contractors will endeavour to be with you within four hours in urban areas and six hours in rural areas.
Q. If one of my toilets is leaking will you carry out a repair?
If you are unable to isolate the leak then we would send a contractor out to you.
Q. One of my toilets is blocked will you carry out a repair?
If you have another toilet in the property and the blockage is not affecting any other
facilities, we would ask you not to use that toilet and contact Skipton Properties on 01535 639620 and select option 4 during normal office hours which are Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm to log it as a maintenance issue. However, if it is the only toilet or is affecting your other facilities, we will send a contractor to unblock the pipes or drains.
Q. I have lost my keys! Can you help?
This is not covered.
