Heading: Annual and Regular Service Checks on Hot Water Cylinders and Boilers
Details: We ask that all owners ensure their hot water cylinders & boilers are inspected on an annual basis with a copy of the Certificate provided to us.
Please note that owners may be held accountable for the full cost of repairs to communal areas and neighbouring properties if the cause was found to be faulty equipment that had not been regularly checked and maintained.
We also recommend that your apartment is checked on a monthly basis for areas where leaks can appear especially during these colder months:-
- Plumbing below sinks, dishwashers, washing machines and toilets
- Beneath kitchen units by removing the kick panels
- Seals around kitchen splashbacks and taps
- Checking the airing cupboard to view hot water cylinders / boilers and other connections
- Seals around the joints between tiles and baths or showers
When a leak does occur, it will often be the result of a very simple issue that could have been detected at an earlier opportunity.
To reduce the chance of leaks and therefore minimising costs to yourselves and impacting on your neighbours, please do carry out regular checks on your apartments. Please forward Annual Certificates to email@example.com to confirm that hot water cylinders and boilers are being serviced and maintained.
Thanking you for your co-operation.

The alarm may sound briefly at intervals during the morning, but this will be no cause for concern.
In order to fully complete the service and test we would like to gain access to the detectors that are located in your apartment and under-croft storeroom and should therefore be grateful if you would contact Jeremy Chick at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0121 236 5757 (option 2) to confirm access.

Obviously, this is a waste of electricity and we therefore request that you please check your under-croft store room and make sure that the lighting there is working properly.

Heading: Bin Store – User Guide
Details: In order to keep your bin store/area clean and tidy and reduce the risk of rodents appearing, we should be grateful if you would follow these simple recommendations when disposing of your rubbish: –
- Ensure that all general rubbish is in properly sealed bin bags.
- Place all your rubbish in either a paladin or the appropriate recycling bin.
The bin men will not remove any rubbish that is not in a paladin or recycling bin and will not empty any paladin or recycling bin if there are any rubbish bags or other items on the floor that are in any way impeding free access to and from the bin store, so please do not leave anything on the floor in the bin store.
- Do not overfill a paladin when there are other paladins with space in them.
- When disposing of cardboard boxes, please collapse them first: it does not take many un-collapsed boxes to fill a paladin or recycling bin.
With particular regard to the recycling bins: –
- Please make sure that you put the right recycling items in the right recycling bin. If a recycling bin is contaminated it will only be emptied if an additional decontamination charge is paid.
- If the recycling bins are all full then you must put your recycling in to one of the general waste paladins. Do not leave any recycling items on the floor as they will not be taken away.
- If you have any bulky items (mattresses, refrigerators, etc.) to dispose of, please go online to www.wychavon.gov.uk and click on Bin & Refuse Enquiries for advice.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
