Through Sutherlands we manage a large number of properties and have found that having a dedicated maintenance engineer is an attractive addition to services we provide.
If you choose to have your property managed by us we can arrange any maintenance work, repair, certification and testing that is required to keep in line with legislation.
There are several options as to how we can maintain your property. We can set the level of consultation or involvement to tailor your preferences. For instance, some of our landlords live abroad and ask that we handle any repairs from light switches to the washing machines, replacements to full furnishings.
Alternatively you can set your parameters with us so that you are kept in the loop for each decision, without the hassle of finding tradesman and negotiating works.
Not only is it important that your property is safe and well maintained during tenancies, also to keep void periods to a minimum, regular assessment of condition, inventories and check out assessments can determine what needs to be done before a new tenant moves in. For every day that your property is empty, you are liable for energy costs, council tax and are not earning any rental return. We have an excellent turn around rate due to our tight procedures and relationship with tradesmen not only working directly for Sutherlands but with Sutherlands. The rapport we have with tradesmen ensures that works are conducted in a timely manner and low cost.
