Summer property repair checklist ~ Stop small problems leading to big repair bills

Jul 7th 2010

The summer months are a perfect time to schedule routine maintenance and carry out 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
Blocked and obstructed airbricks
As a landlord you 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.
