URGENT REPAIRS

Pathway Asset Management appreciates the importance of securing and keeping good tenants and understands that tenants are real people, leading real lives.

URGENT MAINTENANCE PROCEDURE

An emergency repair is only necessary if there is a fault/damage that is likely to cause injury, undue inconvenience or which makes the premises unsafe or insecure. Emergency repairs as defined by the Residental Tenancies and Rooming Accommodations Act are as follows –

  • A burst water service or a serious water service leak
  • A blocked or broken lavatory system
  • A serious roof leak
  • A gas leak
  • A dangerous electrical fault
  • Flooding or serious flood damage
  • Serious storm, fire or impact damage
  • A failure or breakdown of the gas, electricity or water supply to the premises
  • A failure or breakdown of an essential service or appliance on the premises for hot water, cooking or heating
  • A fault or damage that makes the premises unsafe or insecure
  • A fault or damage likely to insure a person, damage the property or unduly inconvenience a resident of the premises
  • A serious fault in a staircase, lift or other common area of the premises that unduly inconveniences a reident in gaining access to, or using, the premises

If such repairs are necessary, you must immediately contact our office in writing; email is accepted. The tenant(s) are responsible for the invoice payment if the reported maintenance issue is deemed the responsibility of the tenant/s or the fault of a tenant/s. If a tradesman is called out to a property for something that is not considered an emergency, the Landlord and Agency reserve the right to pass invoice payment onto the tenant(s).
