Thornsett London Ltd provides a 12 months defect liability period, in compliance with Premier
Guarantee New Homes Warranty guidelines. This does not include accidental damage. Reasonable
access will be required to your property to carry out any necessary repairs. Any problems or issues
which affect your property should be reported to Thornsett in writing as soon as reasonably possible.
Please ensure that any defects reported are genuine faults, otherwise you may incur a charge for a call
out if the Contractor attends and finds that the item reported is not a defect. If a repair arises out of
misuse of or damage to the property, the cost of the repair will be borne by the resident. Light bulbs
should be changed by the resident and are not classed as a defect in relation to the 12 month defect
cover. You will be advised at the time of the callout if this is the case.
We would like to remind you that Thornsett and/or the building contractor would bear responsibility
only for the building defects which are due to poor materials/design/workmanship.
Your home benefits from the Premier Guarantee New Homes Warranty. Generally the Builder is
responsible for defects which arise from poor workmanship or materials during the first year.
However, if a defect concerns a home appliance, you will need to contact the relevant
manufacturer to arrange for an engineer to attend at a time that suits you. We strongly advise that
you complete and return any warranty documents to the manufacturer/supplier to ensure that
your guarantee is validated. You can do this online (details on page 25) or complete the warranty
cards which are included in the appliance pack.
In addition, Thornsett will, as part of their contract with the building contractor, carry out a defect
inspection towards the end of your first twelve months of ownership to ensure that there is no defect
which may not have been apparent to you and that could have an impact to the fabric of the building.
We will need access to your property at this time to carry out the defect inspections. You will be
notified by post in good time, to advise you that these inspections are due to commence.

CONDENSATION–WHAT
IS
G U I D A N C E
IT?
There is always some moisture in the air, even if you cannot see it. If the air gets too cold it
cannot hold all the moisture and tiny drops of water appear. This is called condensation. You
notice condensation on a cold day when you breathe out warm, moisture-laden air, or when the
mirror mists over when you have a bath.
Condensation occurs in cold weather, whether it is raining or dry. It appears on cold surfaces and
in places where there is little air movement. You should look for it in corners, near windows and
in or behind wardrobes and cupboards. Condensation often forms on north facing walls which
are not warmed by the sun.
If you do not take steps to reduce condensation it can lead to some of the common problems
associated with damp, such as mould on walls and furniture. Damp housing encourages the
growth of mould and mites and can increase the risk of respiratory illness.
REDUCING
CONDENSATION
The following information has been included to give advice regarding the control of
condensation.
Never use portable gas or paraffin heaters - one litre of burnt paraffin produces approximately
one litre of water vapour
Where ever possible cook with lids on saucepans
Make sure all your extract fans are operating correctly
In very cold weather keep the heating on all the time (intermittent heating causes condensation
to form on surfaces as they cool)
In cold weather if you are out all day keep the heating on at a low setting
If using a tumble dryer ensure it is vented outside unless it is a condensing dryer
Home Owners should avoid covering radiators with clothes so that the system operates as
efficiently as possible.
If condensation does occur then the following procedures should be followed:
Heat the room
Open a window
Open the room door
Avoid placing large items of furniture against the external walls as pockets of trapped air can
lead to serious surface condensation and mould growth forming on both the wall and furniture.
Remember that it is cheaper to reduce the production of water vapour than it is to compensate
for it by turning up the heating.

Running in a new home requires attention to detail and awareness of heat and ventilation
control, to allow the expansion and contraction of natural materials to take place.
The following details and guidance are provided for the successful ‘running in’ of your new
home.
NEED
FOR
VENTILATION
&
TEMPERATURE
CONTROL
The presence of water in construction materials means that it is essential to allow the property to
dry out as naturally as possible. Natural materials used in the construction of your new home will
expand and contract due to the changes in temperature and moisture content of the air.
Make every effort to keep an ‘even’ temperature. The recommended room setting is 20oC (68 oF),
which should provide adequate heating. Extremes of cold and heat can lead to movement and
cracking of finishes.
Adequate ventilation is important for allowing the drying process to take place. The primary
ventilation method is the windows which have manually operated trickle vents located at the top.
The bathrooms and kitchen area have a secondary measure in the form of a mechanically
operated fan.
To aid ventilation, it is recommended that windows are opened to allow a through-flow of air to
all rooms as and when the weather allows.
MOVEMENT
&
SHRINKAGE
As the drying out process occurs, the building materials will shrink, which may cause small cracks
to appear. Some cracks may re-occur to a reduced extent. Such minor cracks are inevitable but
are not classified as defects and Thornsett is not obliged to rectify them. Trade emulsion which is
a breathable product, has been used to allow walls and ceilings to initially dry out before
redecoration.
The drying out period should take approximately three to six months. Minor shrinkage cracks
should be left for this period and then filled with a DIY product such as pollyfilla or a flexible
decorator’s caulk.
DAMAGE
TO
DECORATIONS
Thornsett cannot be held responsible for damage to additional decorations, which have been
applied too soon.
R U N N I N G
I N
If carrying out any works in your home we recommend considering the use of low VOC
(Volatile Organic Compound) products and the use of certified timber. Using low VOC products
will mean a cleaner healthier environment for you and your family.
SUMMARY
WHAT IS THE OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE SETTING?
The recommended room setting is 20oC (68 oF).
IS IT NORMAL TO SEE CRACKS IN WALLS?
Yes. It is perfectly normal to see small cracks as the building materials shrink in the normal
course of drying out.
ARE THESE STRUCTURAL DEFECTS?
These small cracks are not structural defects and can be filled and covered in the normal course
of redecoration.
WHEN CAN I START REDECORATING?
After one year.
WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE DOUBTS OR QUERIES CONCERNING REPAIR OR
MAINTENANCE ISSUES?
Residents should contact the Managing Agent for guidance.
The apartment conforms to current Building Regulations, intended to ensure residents benefit from
prescribed construction standards, including essential health and safety features. To protect the
integrity of the property, appliances, systems and services, residents should observe the guidance
provided in this manual and the various manufacturers appliance manuals – separately provided.

Prior to contemplating or undertaking any changes to the electrical installations within the
apartment, you need to be aware that for your health and safety there are restrictions upon what
you may and may not do as prescribed by Government legislation.
GOVERNMENT
LEGISLATION
New building regulations aimed at curbing the number of deaths, injuries and house fires caused
by faulty electrical installation, came into force on 1st January 2005.
The new rules affect anyone considering electrical work in the home including DIY enthusiasts.
Failure to comply could lead to householders being required to bring the work up to standard
and may make it difficult to sell their homes.
Minor jobs like replacing sockets and light switches in low risk areas will not be affected.
However, anyone thinking of carrying out jobs including electrical work in the kitchen,
bathrooms or outdoors or adding new circuits to any part of their house will have to get Building
Control involved. The alternative is to get the work carried out by a suitably qualified electrician.
The key question for householders is who will be carrying out the work? If it is themselves, a
friend or relative then they will have to notify the local authority building control department
unless only minor work is involved. An alternative is to employ someone who is registered with a
‘competent person scheme’.
The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister leaflet ‘New Rules for electrical safety in the home’
explains the options and how to identify a ‘competent person’ in your area in a clear and easy to
read style. You can review in online now at the ODPM website and hard copies will be available
from local authorities and competent person scheme operators.

E N E R G Y
E F F I C I E N C Y
Example of an appliance energy label
EU Directive 92/75/EC[1] established an energy consumption labelling scheme. The directive
was implemented by several other directives thus most white goods, light bulb packaging and
cars must have an EU Energy Label clearly displayed when offered for sale or rent. The energy
efficiency of the appliance is rated in terms of a set of energy efficiency classes from A to G on
the label, A being the most energy efficient, G the least efficient. The labels also give other useful
information to the customer as they choose between various models.
When buying a new appliance, it is recommended that you find out the energy efficiency of the
model you want to buy. Please refer to the ‘EU labelling scheme. We recommend purchasing A
rated equipment. Energy saving appliances use less energy, less water, and therefore save you
money as well as being better for the environment.
LABELLING
The energy labels are separated into at least four categories:
•
•
•
•
The appliance's details: according to each appliance, specific details, of the model and its
materials
Energy class: a colour code associated to a letter (from A to G) that gives an idea of the
appliance's electrical consumption
Consumption, efficiency, capacity, etc. This section gives information according to
appliance type
Noise: the noise emitted by the appliance is described in decibel
E N E R G Y
E F F I C I E N C Y
RENEWABLE
ENERGY
The heating and hot water system in the flat is designed to be fuelled from the central plantroom.
The central plantroom is fired by three Low NOx, condensing high efficiency gas boilers.
SUSTAINABILITY
One key aspect of sustainability is embracing renewable energy and the development benefits
from photovoltaic panels on the roof. To be sustainable apartments must also be energy efficient
and therefore minimise their impact on the environment. The apartment is built to a high
standard of insulation and is pressure tested to minimise air leaking into the apartment. Lighting
to public areas is controlled by movement sensors. The materials used in constructing the
development were carefully selected from the Green Guide to minimise the impact on the
environment. All roofs on the development are “green roofs”. These enhance the biodiversity of
ecological life in and around the development. The installation of the green roof also provides a
Sustainable Drainage System. In times of heavy rainfall the green roof will absorb a large
proportion of the rainfall and delay flow entering the public system at a time when the public
system is at maximum capacity.
WATER
Turn off taps while cleaning your teeth, shaving or washing your face. You can waste up to 9
litres a minute by just letting the water pour down the sink.
Take a short shower rather than a bath could save you up to 400 litres a week. If you do have
baths, just half fill them.
Fix any dripping tap, you can waste 90 litres a week which will cost a lot more than what might
just be the price of a new washer.
Don’t overfill the kettle when making a cup of tea. Only fill and boil what you need, this will save
you money on your energy costs too.
Only use the washing machine and the dishwasher when you can put on a full load. It wastes
both water and energy to run only a half full machine.
Think before throwing used water down the drain, eg water in a pan after cooking, this could be
reused for watering plants around the house when cooled down
.
2 . 7
E N E R G Y
S A V I N G
The Energy Saving Trust suggests the following ‘Top Ten Tips’ for saving energy.
Turn your thermostat down. Reducing your room temperature by 1°C
could cut your heating bills by up to 10% and can typically save up to £40
per year. If you have a programmer, set your heating and hot water to come
on only when required rather than all the time.
Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through the windows and
check for draughts around windows and doors.
Always turn off the lights when you leave a room.
Don't leave appliances on standby and remember not to leave laptops and
mobile phones on charge unnecessarily.
If possible, fill up the washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher: one
full load uses less energy than two half loads.
Only boil as much water as you need (but remember to cover the elements
if you're using an electric kettle).
2 . 7
E N E R G Y
S A V I N G
A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough hot
water to fill half a bath, so fix leaking taps and make sure they're fully
turned off!
Use energy saving light bulbs. They last up to 10 times longer than ordinary
bulbs, and using one can save you around £45 over the lifetime of the bulb.
This saving could be around £70 over its lifetime if you're replacing a high
wattage incandescent bulb, or one used for more than a few hours a day.

Your home is fitted with tilt turn windows. A quarter turn of the handle opens the
top slightly for secure ventilation, while a half-turn will allow the window to swing
inward on side hinges so you can easily clean the outside surface. Tilt turn windows
are made from strong, durable UPVC, simply wipe the frames clean with a damp
cloth.
Picture 1: shows the window handle pointing downwards in the closed and locked
position.
Picture 2: shows the handle in the open in the horizontal position. This enables
the window to be tilted open slightly from the top, with the hinge engaged at the
bottom of the window. The window opening is restricted.
Picture 3: shows the window in the open-tilt position.
Picture 4: shows the window handle pointing upwards in the vertical position
which enables the window to be fully opened on the side hinges to enable cleaning
of the outside of the window. You must continue to hold the handle in this
position whilst opening the window/balcony door. The window lock key needs to
be inserted into the lock in order to turn the handle from the quarter position (as
shown in picture no.2) into the vertical position.
Picture 5: shows the window in the fully open position.

G L A Z I N G
Never leave your windows unattended and open.
CARE
&
MAINTENANCE
It is recommended that cleaning should be carried out AT LEAST every three
months. Window frames should be cleaned using a damp cloth and warm soapy
water only.
Steel wool, strong acids, alkalis and abrasive cleaners should never be used.
Periodically, the glazing and framework should be checked for damage and
deterioration especially mastics and sealants. Generally a silicone-based seal is used
which should not be painted.
The hinges and tracking should be cleaned regularly to avoid a build-up of
sediment. Slight lubrication should be carried out when necessary with an acid free
oil. When painting in and around windows, care should be taken to ensure that no
paint covers the weather strip or the hardware.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR WINDOW CLEANING
Cleaning windows (internally and externally) within the apartment is the resident’s
responsibility and as per the Lease, should be carried out no less than every three
months. Most of your windows open fully to enable access for cleaning.
Where applicable the managing agent will arrange for the external windows and
those windows in communal areas to be cleaned periodically.
WINDOW OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS OR BREAKAGES
In the event of any problems, consult with the managing agent.
GUARANTEE
The guarantee for the windows is covered under the Premier Guarantee New
Homes Warranty for 10 years.

APPLIANCES
General guidance is included below. Please refer to the individual appliance manufacturer’s
instructions included in this pack.
Neither the Landlord nor the managing agents are responsible for routine servicing.
For the warranties to apply, appliances must be maintained by the property owner in
accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations. Warranty documentation for
appliances should be completed by the purchaser and registered with the manufacturer in
accordance with manufacturers’ instructions.
CARE
&
MAINTENANCE
-
KITCHEN
UNITS
Whilst modern materials and finishes provide good heat and stain resistance, excessive heat
from hot saucepans etc should not be permitted to come into contact with any surface.
Spillages of any kind should be quickly removed to avoid the possibility of staining and
distortion. Materials are sealed for protection, but prolonged exposure to moisture and heat
could cause materials to degrade.
CLEANING
For all surfaces, it is important to use only a soft cloth, slightly dampened with water and a
mild detergent solution. This will be suitable for the interiors of cabinets, drawer boxes,
frontals (in both timber and synthetic materials), work surfaces and decorative in-fills.
Following cleaning, a polish with either a soft lint free cloth or window leather will ensure all
excess moisture is removed and surfaces are left safe and attractive.
Under no circumstances should any of the following products be used for cleaning
your kitchen.
SCOURING PADS
Scourers could scratch and disfigure the surface. Only careful use on the inside of the
cabinet, for moving stubborn stains, can be recommended.
ABRASIVE CLEANING AGENTS
These can cause surfaces scratches but also may leave deposits in the grain and texture of
the material.
K I T C H E N
U N I T S
&
A P P L I A N C E S
WORKTOPS
PROTECT FROM SCRATCHING
While no harm will be caused by crockery and other kitchen utensils being moved about on
the worktop, the surface can be damaged if used as a cutting surface.
PROTECT FROM MOISTURE
It is important to wipe up all spilt liquids, especially around joints and cut outs.
PROTECT FROM STAINS
The decorative laminate surface will resist most household chemicals. However, damage
may occur if strong chemical substances such as bleach, curry, beetroot juice, concentrated
fruit juice, food colourings and dyes are left in contact with the surface. Spillages of any
potentially damaging chemicals should be quickly removed.
PROTECTION FROM HEAT
The laminate surface will resist the temperature of boiling water and hot cooking splashes.
However, damage may occur if hot saucepans, oven dishes, and electric irons or burning
cigarettes are placed on the worktop surface. To prevent damage, always use heat resistant
mats and ashtrays.
CLEANING
A wipe over with a damp cloth is all that is needed for normal day-to-day use. An occasional
clean, using a mild detergent and warm water, will help maintain its original appearance.

INSTRUCTIONS
BASINS, BATHS & SHOWER SCREENS
Trays and tops should be cleaned and dried as soon as possible after use. In hard water
areas, insoluble lime salts and grime will harden on the surface and become increasingly
difficult to remove.
It is important to ensure that when cleaning bathroom furniture, only non-abrasive cleaners
are used (e.g. not Ajax or Cif) to prevent scratching on the surfaces.
In the interest of safety, baths and shower trays must not be polished with wax or silicone
polish (e.g. Pledge, Mr. Sheen).
A sealant has been applied around your bath and shower tray, where water splashes occur.
Owing to natural drying of your new home, these areas may become vulnerable to
movement.
B A T H R O O M
&
W C
SHOWER HEADS
Heads should be cleaned using a mild solution of washing up liquid mixed with water. Don’t
use anything caustic. Mild detergents are to be used instead of ‘branded’ cleaners which are
too harsh for the chrome shower.
Register your shower at www.vado-uk.com/guarantee_registration.php for your 12 year
guarantee.
SANITARY WARE
China basins, pedestals, WC pans, WC cisterns and shower trays.
The recommended listed above, should be followed for chinaware, with the exception that
occasional use of abrasive cleaners (e.g. Ajax, Cif) will not damage glazed surface.
Proprietary bleaches and toilet pan cleaners may be used as required, with no risk of damage
to the china or glaze.
In the event of fine scratches in the sanitary ware surface, a fine abrasive cleaner (e.g. Brasso
or similar metal polish) may be used but it is recommended that great care be taken if
employing such cleaning methods.
TAPS & HINGES
Under no circumstances should cleaners containing abrasive pastes or chemicals be used.
The use of cleaners of this type, whether on stainless steel, chrome, gold or white taps or
hinges, will abrade any protective surfaces and cause corrosion. Soapy water, silicone or wax
polishes (e.g. Mr. Sheen, Pledge) may be used with no risk of causing damage.

The door and lock is a ‘Secure by Design’ standard for your safety and security.
Operation:
To enter the apartment – Insert your key into the deadlock which turns the deadlock
(picture 2).
Once you have unlocked the door, push the handle in the downward position which releases
the 3-point locking mechanism.
Once inside the apartment, close the door behind you, using the handle and return it to the
horizontal position, as shown in picture 1 above. This will re-engage the 3-point locking
mechanism. Then, turn the snib (deadlock) in order to engage the deadlock as per picture 3.
Whenever you are inside the apartment, please ensure that the snib/deadlock is engaged at
all times.
When you leave your apartment, but other people are still inside, close the front door and
turn the key to engage the deadlock. This secures the door from the outside, but when the
people inside the apartment exit, they can do so by opening the snib.
When you leave the apartment empty, you should close the door and turn the key to engage
the deadlock
D O O R S
DUSTY SURFACES
Day to day build-up of dust particles can usually be removed with a soft duster, but if dust
has bedded into the grain of the veneer it will have to be removed by the application of a
liquid reviver such as teak oil or liquid furniture wax.
A cost effective cleanser can be made by mixing approximately 60% Linseed Oil with 40%
White Spirit.
DAMP HAZE (BLOOM)
A milky blue haze can sometimes develop due to cold conditions, high humidity or
condensation etc. This can be removed by polishing with a soft cloth or the application of a
good furniture wax, but do not apply these whilst still in a damp atmosphere, particularly if
using aerosol type furniture creams or liquids.
PAINT SMEARS
On no account try to remove with cellulose thinners or paint strippers as this may attack the
original finish.
If the paint has smeared it can often be removed by very carefully scraping with a sharp
razor blade, but care must be taken not to scrape the lacquer. Warm water to which a little
detergent has been added helps with some water based paints.
RUB MARKS OR LIGHT SCRATCHES
These can generally be removed or at least disguised by light rubbing with 00 grade wire
wool, followed by the wire wool coated with a soft wax. If the marks are very light, use the
wax coated wire wool from the beginning, as this will reduce the abrasive action.
GENERAL AFTERCARE
A soft duster should be sufficient to preserve doors in good condition but if desired,
proprietary furniture polishes, creams, teak oils etc., can be applied once the dust has been
removed.

(Miniature Circuit Breakers). Switching the main switch to the off position will isolate all the
electrical supply to your home, including the supply to the central heating system. The
MCBs are labelled in the inside of the lid of the consumer unit and have three spare ways.
Inside the consumer units, the electricity supply is protected with an RCD button that will
quickly cut off the supply if a fault occurs from a power outlet socket but not from a lighting
circuit. If power fails in your apartment, you should check the consumer unit to see which
circuit has tripped. You can then reset this circuit.

It is recommended that the RCD should be tested every 3 months by pressing the button
marked ‘Test or T’. If the RCD fails to switch off the supply when pressed, you should seek
expert advice.

primarily used for lamps and once plugged
in to these wall sockets, using their round
pin plug function can be controlled via the
wall switches.

INFORMATION
If a circuit is overloaded or an appliance develops a fault, an MCB (a miniature circuit
breaker) in the electricity consumer control unit protecting the circuit will switch OFF
automatically; this is to help prevent serious accidents, which may result in damage and
injury. Inside the consumer control unit are labels identifying which switch (known as a
miniature circuit breaker or MCB) covers which parts of your homes’ electricity supply.
If the reason for the MCB going to the OFF position is not clear, then put the MCB switch
back to its original ON position. If it will not stay on then complete the following:
1. Switch OFF and unplug any appliances on that particular circuit. By attempting to
return the MCB switch to the ON position after removing each appliance it is
possible to identify the faulty appliance.
2. As each appliance is disconnected/unplugged try to reinstate the MCB on the circuit.
If there is a faulty appliance it will trip OFF each time until the faulty appliance is
disconnected. At this point the MCB will remain ON. DANGER - DO NOT
ATTEMPT TO REUSE A FAULTY APPLIANCE, ARRANGE FOR ITS
REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT.
3. If the MCB still fails to remain in the ON position a fault may exist in the electrical
circuit itself and you should inform the maintenance department immediately.

ROOM
HEATING
Your home is fitted with a hot water central heating system, consisting of a heat exchanger unit,
under floor heating, a pump and controls. Water heated by the heat exchanger is pumped around
the under floor heating system through pipework concealed in the walls and floors.
Within each room or space a switched spur feeds the under floor heating via a wall mounted
controller (below) which provides temperature and time clock control. You should note that
heating from cold will take longer to achieve the desired temperature.
Heating is powered by a Evinox Heat Exchanger unit which is located in your hallway cupboard
(picture 1) and generates heating and hot water.. The on/off timer settings are controlled via the
Evinox wall mounted timer units (Picture 2 below).

For further information on configuring the system to your requirements, residents should refer
to the manufacturer’s operating instructions provided. A laminated copy double sided simple
step by step user guide was provided to you on handover.
A STEP BY STEP USER GUIDE IS PROVIDED SEPARATELY AS PART OF YOUR
HOMEOWNERS MANUAL. THIS IS A TWO SIDED LAMINATED DOCUMENT
WITH EASY STEPS WHICH MUST BE REFERRED TO BEFORE CALLING THE
MANAGING AGENT. IF THE STEPS ARE NOT FOLLOWED, YOU MAY BE
CHARGED FOR AN UNNECESSARY CALL OUT.
H E A T I N G
WATER
HEATING
Your water is heated by the heat exchanger unit. There is a communal hot water cylinder located
in the basement. Water from the rising main is directly heated and distributed from the basement
to the hot taps around your apartment. There is a control on the heat exchanger to set the
temperature of the hot water from the taps. This has been ‘factory set’ at 40o and shouldn’t need
to be adjusted.
A programmer is provided to turn the heating on and off and you should adjust the settings to
suit your own requirements. In cold weather it might be necessary to leave the heating on for
longer periods than in milder weather. A room thermostat is provided to regulate room
temperatures room by room. Usage of the hot water (via the heat exchanger) will be billed by the
managing agents who are able to monitor your hot water usage from a central reader and bill you
accordingly.
MAINTENANCE
Heat Exchanger - The Heat Exchangers should be checked and serviced at least once a year by an
Evinox engineer so that they remain safe.
The managing agent will arrange for an approved Gas Safe Registered engineer to service your Heat
Exchanger annually. Access will be required to the Heat Exchanger and the managing agent will
contact you in good time to arrange this. The cost of servicing the heat plate exchangers and the
communal boiler will be included in your utility invoice.
Under floor heating – there is no special maintenance required for the under floor heating system. It
is guaranteed for 10 years (but not for accidental damage).
Failure to return any warranty documents could invalidate your warranty.

Whilst your apartment does not have an individual gas supply, gas does supply the
communal boilers which are located in the basement which supply the heat exchangers with
heating and hot water throughout the whole development.
You will not receive a gas bill from the utility company, but you will be invoiced by the
managing agents, for usage of your heating and hot water consumption. This usage is read
from the heat exchanger meter reading – which is done remotely using the building
management system. Access will not be required to your apartment to check the meter.
Evinox will provide the bills for each apartment. If your apartment is rented out, you will
need to re-invoice these costs to your tenants.
In any event….
•
Before fixing to walls, floors and ceilings always check for buried pipes and cables
using a detector.
•
The detector will detect metal in walls and can be used to identify runs for services
(eg gas and electricity) and should be used in accordance with the instructions.
If you smell gas:
•Open doors and windows
•Avoid the use of any naked flames or electrical switches
•Turn the gas off at the meter unless the meter is located in the cellar/basement
National Grid – Gas Escape Emergency
0800 111 999
If you suspect a gas leak or gas emergency in your apartment, or anywhere else call National
Grid’s emergency number. A call handling agent will log all the appropriate details
including:
•The address/location of the suspected gas escape or gas emergency
•How many people are at the property where the smell is most noticeable?
•How long the smell has been noticeable?
•Is the smell coming from the cellar/basement?
•Are any neighbours affected?
•Your name and phone number
•Any special circumstances or access information
Getting accurate address details is very important as National Grid will want to make sure
they send engineers to exactly the right place. You will be asked to verify these details for
this very reason. Your address and postcode are particularly important.

FIRE
P R O T E C T I O N
CONTAINMENT
To comply with Building Regulations the homes are designed to meet minimum fire
containment standards.
Between homes, party walls and ceilings provide protection from fire.
To maintain the integrity of the fire containment protection, each of the doors leading into a
habitable area incorporates an intumescent strip recessed on the top and sides of the door
frame which, when subjected to heat, will automatically expand to reduce the rate of which
heat and smoke will penetrate the doorways.
To maximise protection and contain fire:
These doors should be kept properly closed at all times.
The storage of combustible materials that might exacerbate a fire, or impede the passage of
people into or out of the apartment should be avoided.
CARE
&
MAINTENANCE
For safety reasons, only a competent carpenter should be employed to repair or replace a
door closer unit.
REDECORATING OF DOORS
To avoid affecting the fire protection properties do not paint over the intumescent strip
around the doors.
SMOKE
ALARM
&
HEAT
DETECTORS
Each apartment has a mains operated smoke and heat detector. The alarm will sound if it
detects fire or potential risk of fire.
Typically there is one heat detector located on the kitchen ceiling and one smoke detector in
the hallway.
The detector units are mains powered with an internal dry cell back-up battery (which
should not need to be changed); which constantly monitor the immediate areas.
When a potential fire risk condition occurs the alarm units will sound. If necessary you
should follow your emergency evacuation procedure.
If the activation is a false alarm, the unit may be silenced by pressing the ‘Test/Hush’ button
for a few seconds. This action will silence the alarm for approximately 10 minutes after
which the unit will automatically re-set. However, if the smoke density increases when in
silenced mode, the alarm will automatically restart.
F I R E
P R O T E C T I O N
CHECK
&
TEST
Check weekly that the indicator light is on. This indicates that the alarm is receiving mains
power.
Test weekly by pushing in the test button for about 10 seconds until the alarm sounds.
Low Battery Warning
The alarm will tell you when the battery is low by beeping every 60 seconds. A new battery
should be fitted as soon as possible.
You should refer to the manufacturer’s operating instructions for further guidance.

The proportion applied will be as specified in the lease for each property and in accordance with
the managing agent’s scheme for the building.
ANNUAL RECONCILIATION
The service charge instalments are based upon an estimated budget plan. Consequently, each year
on completion of the Managing Agent’s audited accounts, each property owner will receive a
reconciliation statement showing any credit or debit balance on their service charge account. Any
debit balance will be immediately payable and any credit balance will be offset against future
instalments.
The managing agent is required to prepare an annual account of the maintenance expenses
(distinguishing between actual expenditure and a reserve for future expenditure) for the 12
month period ending 31st December.
The accounts are to be audited by an independent accountant as soon as is practicable and the
managing agent will circulate a copy of the accounts, together with the accountant’s certificate, to
each tenant.
PAYMENT OF SERVICE CHARGE
The amount invoiced must be paid in full within 14 days of written demand. If not paid within
14 days of the due date, action may be taken in accordance with the lease and interest charged.
Payment of the service charge may be made via standing order, see below for the relevant bank

To conform to the lease, when the ownership of a property is to be transferred, or a property is
to be sublet, the landlord and management company must be formally advised of the transaction
via the managing agent, and preferably before legal agreements are entered into.
When selling a property, your solicitor will need up-to-date information about the insurance of
the building, service charges etc.
You may be able to supply the solicitor with some of this information yourself but if not, the
solicitor should apply in writing to the managing agent who will charge a fee for this service.
