We are required to carry out services and inspections within your home to help to ensure your health and safety.
Help us keep your home safe
To find out why it’s important that you allow us into your home to carry out essential work, and to hear from our residents about how easy their own experiences were, please watch our video below. You can also find useful information about different types of work in the fact-sheets in the Supporting Documents box on this page.
Please contact us with any concerns or questions.
Types of servicing and inspection
Electrical safety inspection
We carry out inspections of electrical installations in all our properties every five years, in accordance with the recommendations provided by the Electrical Safety Council for rented properties. This ensures they continue to be in a safe and serviceable condition.
We have a legal duty to arrange for an annual Gas Safety Check to be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer in all our properties. Our policies and procedures are very comprehensive, which also ensures you receive an excellent standard of servicing and repairs.
Having your oil-fired boiler serviced regularly can keep it operating at its most efficient and reduce fuel bills. It is recommended that oil-fired appliances and equipment are serviced at least once a year or as recommended by the manufacturer. Appliances should be inspected and cleaned, and components replaced, as required, during the service. If your boiler is not serviced annually it is at higher risk of breaking down.
Arranging the visits
Gas and oil servicing
PH Jones will contact you two months before your gas certificate expires and offer you an appointment.
You can use the PH Jones online portal for rearranging your appointment date if the date you have been given is not suitable. You will be able to select a new date, provided that this does not go beyond the date of your current gas service.
