Landlords – Winter Is Coming

Check your property now, before problems arise.  The following is a guide to action you should consider taking;

  • Service the boiler. With cold weather approaching the boiler will be in constant use. Has it been serviced?   Is the gas safety certificate up to date?
  • Clear the gutters. Leaves and debris could cause rain water to build up, leading to damp and problems that the tenant will not be responsible for.
  • Do water pipes need cladding to prevent them freezing? Tenants liability will not usually extend to burst pipes.
  • Autumn brings on the damp. Get your property checked as you don’t want it to take hold,  which could end up with a visit from an Environmental Health Officer.
  • Check your occupiers. You don’t want a claim for adverse possession.  Is granny coming for Christmas or for good?

Taking these simple steps now can avoid a painful and often expensive process of recovery or repair later. 

If you need any help or advice, please call Ian Heal on 02392 820 747.
