It's essential to make sure that you check the condition of your property on a six monthly basis from top to bottom.
Things to check are whether the gutters and drains are working properly and there are no leaks. Make sure that any missing tiles are replaced and that your window and door locks are secure. Check the bathroom and kitchen sealants are still water tight.
Parker Stag will carry out detailed inspections and also liaise with the Tenants so that any problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently, before they become more serious.
However great the tenants might seem, it is always wise to do regular checks on the property.
If nothing else, it helps you see anything that needs fixing, such as a leak. You are likely to have to give your tenants 48 hours notice of your visit and it's a good idea to carry out the checks every three to six months. Parker Stag will do these for you.
Make sure all gas appliances have been checked by a Gas Safe-registered engineer.
Landlords have a legal duty to have all gas appliances in their properties inspected every year and fit at least one smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector, if they're not already installed. Parker Stag will arrange these on behalf of the property.
