After hour’s emergency repairs

 

Should an emergency repair be required after hours then you need to call Lauren on 0434 088 098

 

Misplaced Keys

 

If you have misplaced your keys during business hours you may come to our office and borrow our office set.

If you have misplaced your keys after hours, you may call a locksmith to assist you back into the property. This is at the tenant cost.

 

IMPORTANT! Most modern window flyscreens can only be removed from the inside of the property. Attempting to remove them from the outside will result in damage to the flyscreen frame work, and will result in the flyscreen having to be repaired or replaced at your cost. This may cost more than what it would cost to have a locksmith attend the property to allow you access back in.

 

Property Damage

 

If property damage has occurred you are obligated to let us know immediately, or on the next business day if occurring on a weekend or public holiday.

 

Noise/Disruption

 

It is important to note that the utmost care must be taken to ensure that you do not infringe on disrupting your neighbours with noise. Loud music, parties and the like can disrupt a neighbour’s right to peace and the quiet enjoyment of their residence.

In the case of units and apartments, particular care must be taken with respect to noise due to the close proximity of other properties, usual. This also includes your obligation to ensure that your visitors are not disrupting neighbours when walking from your premises to their parked vehicles.

 

Air conditioners

 

Please, regularly clean any filters and intake vents to ensure there is no build-up of dirt and dust, and that the unit is able to draw in air effectively, and hindering performance, or in the worst case scenario, causing the unit to breakdown resulting in costly repairs and/or replacement. Please also note that if an air conditioner breaks down due to filters and vents not being kept clean, costs to rectify the damage or even replace the unit might be charged to tenants.

 

Smoke Alarms

 

Should you believe for any reason the smoke alarm(s) installed are not working or the batteries are not functioning, please let us know immediately. Protect your safety by being vigilant and report to us any issues, to ensure your safety in the case of a fire.
