Roof maintenance surveys for landlords and letting agent
A maintenance survey is a detailed schedule of defects together with how urgent remedial work is and how much it will cost.
We strongly recommend roof maintenance surveys for landlords, letting agents and property freeholders especially if they are not located in the same area as the properties being inspected.
Regular planned inspection and maintenance is the best way to keep costs down since any problems with a property’s roof can be quickly detected and dealt with. We are more aware than most of how a small repair job can turn into a full roof replacement if it isn’t discovered and acted upon promptly. For landlords, particularly those with small portfolios, having to leave properties empty for major refurbishment can be a disaster.
A maintenance survey is also a useful tool for monitoring tenants and how they are treating your roof (and the property in general). It enables landlords and letting agents to pinpoint when roof damage has occurred and its likely cause.
Preparing for stricter landlord regulation
Regular planned maintenance is also a good habit to get into. There has been a move by the government over recent months and years to tighten up on regulation for landlords. Keeping your property in a good state of repair will stand you in good stead for government inspections as well as proving that you care for the welfare of your tenants.
