Guard Against Burst Pipes in Winter

When the winter draws in we will often see problems with burst water pipes in rental properties. The plunging temperatures can see water pipes in the properties freeze up, and upon melting, the pipes can burst causing potential damage to the property and to tenants’ contents. We therefore very strongly recommend that you leave the central heating on for at least two hours each morning and two hours at the coldest part of the night (or on a low constant setting, say 18 degrees) to ensure that there are no freeze-ups in the property. We have had major problems in this regard before at this time of year so please take the necessary precautions.
