The majority of property repairs, are carried out in-house, by our own maintenance workers, hence when a student reports a problem we get the repair carried in a short space of time typically in one or two days.
In the case where we cannot solve the problem in house we have reliable contractors whose response times are monitored.
The safety of our students, is paramount, we therefore provide a complete fire alarm system with engineers on call 24/7.
In the case of Appliance repairs such as freezers we carry spares, which can be used to replace the faulty appliance thereby getting the problem solved quickly.
We offer telephone support during office hours to help solve any problems that occur prior to calling an engineer. We are continually updating our properties using our planned maintenance procedures, which prevents the properties going into a bad state of repair.
At MGH we take safety very seriously, all our properties have valid certificates for:
- Gas Equipment such as Boilers (Serviced & Renewed Annually)
- Fire Alarm System (Serviced & Renewed Annually)
- Fire Fighting Equipment (Serviced & Renewed Annually)
- Electrical Wiring (Renewed Every 5 Years)
During November we let our properties out for the next Academic Year, from experience our properties let very quickly usually by the end of the first term .
All applicants have the same opportunity so the system is fair.
