If the fault is reported during normal working hours, we will try to establish the location of the fault.

If the fault is not on our network then we may not be responsible for its repair.

We reserve the right to charge for any abortive work or visit arising from faults over which we have no control. Should an engineer need to visit your premises we will agree this with you.
