Tenant Emergencies

Please find details of our emergency contractors below. Contractors will only attend outside of office hours in cases of genuine emergencies. If your issue is not an emergency, then please report your issue to our office via maintenance@cpshomes.co.uk and we’ll arrange for a contractor to attend as soon as possible.

Please be aware that in some cases you will be required to pay the contractors up front, and as long as the contractor can confirm that you did not cause the problem, we will arrange reimbursement. This is necessary as contractors will not be able to confirm you live in a managed property when they attend.

CPS Homes - Did you know?

We have a full tenant-help guide available on our website, so give it a quick once-over before reporting any maintenance issues, as the answer to your problems (well, certain problems... we're not that good!) may well be there.

Naturally, there are going to be some things that are beyond your capabilities. After all, you're not going to be expected to go on a plumbing course just because you've chosen to rent a property! So if there's anything you're unsure of, it's always best to make contact with your landlord or managing agent and have them offer their advice.

Always be sure to report any maintenance issues you can't deal with yourself as soon as possible. Any delay may result in a deterioration in condition or, in the worst case scenario, irreparable damage, which you'd rather not be held responsible for because you didn't report it in time. It sounds outlandish, but it has been known to happen!

Bear in mind that if you instruct a contractor call-out, even in an emergency situation, you may be liable for a call-out charge that your landlord does not have to pay.
