LANDLORDS ~ Summer Property Repairs

Summer property repairs

The summer is a perfect time to carry out maintenance and improvements to the outside of your property. Undertaking a visual inspection now will give you plenty of time to prepare and plan for the months ahead. Things to look out for include:

  • Loose and missing roof tiles
  • Rotten and exposed woodwork
  • Unsafe and blocked guttering
  • Broken and uneven paving

Landlords have a legal responsibility to keep your property in a good state of repair.

It can also make good business sense to protect your investment and ensure that small problems don’t lead to big repair bills.

Landlords are expected to keep any property they let to tenants, in a good state of repair and well maintained.

These are legal requirements as well as best practice for the safe and effective letting of a premise.
