Searching for unmatched customer service and exceptional property maintenance for landlords?
Read on to discover why maintenance services are essential for buy-to-let properties and other forms of investment property.
From out-of-hours service to electrical works, there are countless advantages to obtaining a property maintenance contract.
What are the benefits of property maintenance services and call-outs?
The main advantage of committing to a property maintenance contract is the reassurance and peace of mind it provides for landlords.
Knowing that a team of qualified and experienced tradesmen are on hand to carry out repairs prevents the time-consuming and costly search for professional movers, locksmiths and plumbers.
Not to mention, the out-of-hours service also helps to prevent significant damage from seriously affecting the property and tenants. Burst pipes and break-ins, for example, can be particularly damaging for the tenants and the property itself (and by further extension, the landlord), so it’s vital that the property is quickly repaired and/or secured.
Property maintenance services and 24/7 emergency call-outs also provide tenants with reassurance, boosting tenant satisfaction and thereby helping to prevent long periods of the property being vacant.
Ultimately, there are many benefits of property maintenance services and call-outs for landlords, but you can find out more about these services below.

Types of properties maintenance services are available for
While property maintenance services are typically used by landlords of buy-to-let properties, they can be beneficial for residential, commercial, industrial, and even special-purpose property.
This is because property maintenance services can encompass such a wide and varied range of repairs and works. Unless the property is exceptionally easy (and affordable!) to manage, it often makes sense to enter into a property maintenance contract.
