Home Emergency - Winter Worries!

We were reminiscing in the Leaseguard offices this week, thinking about how this time last year we were up to our ankles in snow! That got us thinking - with colder weather fast approaching and more predicted snow this winter, how prepared is your property for this year's cold snap?

After last year's cold (sub-zero!) weather conditions we saw a rise in claims for things such as burst pipes and noticed that little problems were escalating as people struggled to get a hold of tradesmen!

Your insurance policy will cover the cost of any damages incurred but how will you source a quick repair job? With Leaseguard's Home Emergency product you won't have to worry about an emergency call from your tenant or sourcing a vetted and reliable contractor at short notice!

With Home Emergency from Leaseguard you can access a 3 way call system, day or night, which gives you instant access to assistance to resolve your emergencies quickly! You can also avoid that middle of the night wake up call from a tenant reporting problems - your tenant can contact the help desk directly 24/7, 365 days a year!

That's the middle of the night wake up call taken care of but what about the stress of having to locate a good, reliable and trusted tradesman? With Home Emergency you can rest assured that a fully trained, local tradesperson will arrive at an arranged and convenient appointment time. What's more, with the 3-way call system they will already be briefed on the job and will have the tools needed to complete the repair.
