Wilkie May & Tuckwood
Repairs & Maintenance
If you require us to manage the property the following procedures apply:
Emergency or Essential Repairs
We will always attempt to contact you first, except in cases of emergency when the work will be carried out on your behalf.
Again we will contact you before any action is taken
Maintenance of Electrical Equipment and Central Heating Systems
These are the landlord’s responsibility. The landlord is legally responsible for the provision of these services.
Central Heating and Hot Water Boilers
These should be serviced regularly. Where a maintenance agreement is not in operation we recommend that you take out an annual maintenance agreement with a qualified tradesman. This cost should be covered by the landlord.
ALL GAS APPLIANCES MUST BE SERVICED ANNUALLY BY A CORGI REGISTERED ENGINEER. THE LANDLORD MUST KEEP A RECORD OF ALL SERVICING AND REPAIRS TOGETHER WITH ISSUED SAFETY CERTIFICATES FOR SIX YEARS. THIS IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT.
If you prefer we will be happy to use your own tradesmen. They will need to be easy to contact, qualified and hold Professional Indemnity Insurance. Otherwise, we have an extensive list of tradesmen who have proved to be reliable and competent.
