Ensuring your tenants and property are safe is one of the main concerns of any landlord. Steven Watkins from Ellis & Co Leyton Branch helps you get your property ready for the winter months to help avoid any unforeseen complications.
With winter just around the corner, now is the time to protect your property against any potential damage.
Priorities getting your property s boiler serviced. Depending on your contract, it could be down to you, the landlord, to fix the boiler if it breaks down. Having a service well before cold winter weather will help prevent any problems.
Cleaning out the gutters well in advance of winter will help prevent blockages. Blocked gutters can cause water to seep into the property which can result in damp. Ensuring they are clean will help water to drain properly. You should also arrange a time to visit the property as autumn draws to a close to remove the last of the dead leaves from the gutters.
It s also a good idea to check the roof tiles before any severe winter weather causes them to become dislodged. Again, this will allow water to enter your property leaving it at risk of damp. Always get a professional to check your roof so you stay out of harm s way.
It might seem like a big job, but giving any wooden window panes and doors an extra lick of paint will help them to stay in once piece during wet weather. This will also give the exterior of your property a smarter look which will certainly please your tenants.
Staying in touch with your tenants and giving them some advice is the best way of keeping your property well-maintained in winter. Ask them to keep the heating on to prevent frozen pipes and damp. This is particularly important if they are going away for a few weeks and leaving the heating on a low setting is advised.
The golden rule to looking after your tenants, is to let them know exactly how to reach you. Provide and email address and two contact telephone numbers at least. If you are going away, make sure you let them know well in advance and provide an emergency point of contact. This can be anyone you trust to look after the property or your lettings agency.
Finally, make sure you have landlords insurance to protect you should your property experience any weather-related damage.
Many of these steps require visiting your rented property. Always ask your tenants if you can visit the property before you go over and specify exact times.
