Lift repairs

If someone is trapped in a lift call 020 7403 9271 and an engineer will attend within 1 hour

To report all other lift problems call 020 7525 2600 and an engineer will attend within 4 hours. 

Help us keep our lifts in working condition:

  • don’t spit, urinate or allow your pet to urinate in the lift
  • don’t hold lift doors open
  • don’t kick any objects into the door tracks, runners or gaps
  • don’t press the alarm button unless you are trapped inside the lift
  • don’t wedge the lift doors open as this could damage the door mechanism
