Please be aware that during periods of cold weather, the following precautions should be put into action if the above property is likely to be left vacant for any period of time.Pipes
Freezing temperatures can cause devastation to properties if pipes freeze and burst. Please be reminded to leave the heating on low, even if the property is unoccupied to look to prevent this from happening.Water Systems
If it's likely that your property will be empty for a significant period of time, turning off the water is not always sufficient as there is normally still a lot of water in the system which could cause damage. Please advise SWSL if the property will be empty for any period longer than 14 days as SWSL will also need to advise the Landlords of the situation so they can check their insurance policy as a plumber may be needed to drain down the system (water and central heating) to help eliminate this risk.Tenant Obligations
If the property is going to be left empty for more than a 14 day period:
Some or all of the below actions may be required:-
Water to be turned off at the internal stopcock (in an attempt to prevent any further problems in case of an emergency, please be aware of the location of your stop cock and check that it is in working order)
Set the heating onto a constant low (150C) 24 hour setting
Lock all doors and windows in the property
