FAQ: Home Maintenance
Maintenance and Protecting your home after you’ve moved in
During the handover of your new Lansell home, we run through everything with you to ensure all is in working order. Then we provide all warranty documentation, including instruction manuals, keys, remote controls, and contact details for service connections.
We strongly recommend reading the instruction manuals to ensure you use your new appliances appropriately. We also urge you to get familiar with properly cleaning your flooring, countertops, carpets, windows, etc.
Three-month maintenance check
Complete and submit the ‘3 Monthly Maintenance Notice’ form (supplied in your handover kit) to raise any concerns that have come up during the settling period of your new home.
Urgent maintenance issues
If an urgent problem arises that may impact your new home’s security or lead to property damage, contact us immediately. If you have any issues with water or power, contact the plumber or electrician (and us) immediately. These contact details are in your handover kit.
