Home security is one of the most important things to both homeowners and property rental tenants. For tenants, having an agent that reacts quickly to queries and property issues is an important factor. If there is a leak from a sink, a broken boiler or an electrical problem, a tenant will quickly become frustrated. That’s why having an experienced letting agent can make all the difference when it comes to keeping a tenant happy.
With a network of property maintenance specialists, including plumbers, electricians and decorators, we can step in quickly to resolve an issue before it becomes a problem.
It is normal for tenancy agreements to state that the landlord is responsible for maintenance work in a rented property. This means that the tenant has to report any issues such as a leak, broken window or broken appliances such as an oven, washing machine or dishwasher. In order to get these issues dealt with quickly and to avoid further damage, it’s important that you know your letting agent is capable of getting the repairs done quickly.
If you’re looking to rent a property, you should always check the process of getting repairs and maintenance jobs done and how quickly the landlord or their managing agent can respond.
Keep tenants happy without stress
If you have a property to rent and are considering which letting agent to use, make sure you ask them about property maintenance and ensure they have tradesmen able to attend quickly when an issue comes up.
If not, make sure you have a list of maintenance contacts such as plumbers, electricians and service contacts for any appliances you have included in your property. If goods are under guarantee, make sure you have the receipt and service contact information to hand. If you keep tenants happy without stress, life as a landlord should be stress free too.
