Maintenance of faulty electrical appliances, broken hot water services, cracked tiles and windows etc., can be an inevitable cost for landlords.
Landlords carrying out cost-cutting repairs in their properties themselves, without regulation qualifications and insurance can result to greater cost to the landlord in the long run.
Authorising a Property Manager to manage maintenance issues arising at the investment property by attending to issues quickly, can stop small repairs becoming a major and costly exercise. It also helps avoid potential legal liability if the repairs were carried out with substandard workmanship and the issue causes injury to a tenant or their guest.
Delegating property maintenance to a Property Manager will ensure that the tradespeople are licensed and reputable. There will also be a maintenance log history for every issue reported.
