Help that keeps your tenants happy and your properties in A1 condition.
As a landlord, you could be forgiven for thinking of maintenance as a frustrating fact of life – a cost for which you get little benefit.
Yet at Locate, we think of maintenance very differently. For the landlords we work with, maintenance is an opportunity. It’s an opportunity to:
Create better, more sought after properties
To increase the rental and even capital value of a property
To build better relationships with tenants
To turn short term lets into longer leases, and reduce void periods
To protect the properties in your portfolio
To ensure you are compliant with all necessary regulations
We’ll maintain your properties for you
Whilst the list of benefits of keeping your properties well maintained is long, that still doesn’t necessarily mean you want to spend your days with a toolbox in hand, fixing leaky pipes or awkward locks. So let us.
Since 2004, we’ve built a maintenance team of over a dozen trusted, specialist tradesmen. And for a single maintenance management fee, we can place them all at your disposal.
So when your tenants have any sort of problem, they call us, and we arrange for a member of the maintenance team to fix it fast, reliably, and cost effectively. Simple.
Maintenance tailored to your portfolio
Like every service we offer at Locate, the maintenance packages we offer can be tailored to you, your portfolio, your tenants and your business model. The price of each package is designed to balance healthy profits with the essential maintenance that keeps properties safe and tenants happy.
Maintenance work could include:
Gas safety checks – including boiler safety and certification
Electrical checks, including PAT testing (on appliances) and alarm testing
HHSRS hazard safety checks – protecting tenants – and protecting you against claims
Joinery – including kitchen fitting and door hanging
