Nothing sums up wintery Britain like the song 'In the Bleak Midwinter' and with a shocking forecast for January, February and March, now is the time to put an emergency plan in place.
As a property manager or letting agent, you’re responsible for the habitable conditions of hundreds of tenants and unfortunately freezing temperatures bring with them all kinds of hazards. You can't always stop a pipe bursting, or a boiler breaking down, but you can be ready to rectify the problem with the help of Everything Lettings, who have comprehensive emergency maintenance cover packages available which are perfect for letting agents and landlords who are worried how they'll cope if the winter is as harsh as predicted.
Roy Fuller, Sales Director at Everything Lettings, comments: "Forecasters are saying there will be exceptionally prolonged spells of widespread cold - the worst in modern times - so there is likely to be an overreliance on central heating and potential for pipes to burst during sub-zero temperatures. Emergency help-lines will be ringing off the hook and not every agent or property manager will have the resources to deal with a deluge of emergencies. Outsourcing the emergency lines to Everything Lettings is the sensible choice as we have the call handlers and the critical number of qualified tradespeople ready to deal with an influx of calls. Our Home Emergency Helpline is staffed by property professionals, who are trained to qualify an emergency, assign the correct tradesperson, and book an appointment with the tenants and the engineer. Our lines are manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so there's never any need for your own staff to be on call."
Everything Lettings' comprehensive emergency cover plan features a protection that will cover landlords for up to £500 per claim* - with an unlimited amount of claims per year - which is reassuring should a cold snap tighten its grip. The comprehensive cover can even include a boiler servicing programme and annual gas safety inspections. Additionally, there is the ability to white-label Everything Lettings' services, so the tenants will hear your company name when they call.
Everything Lettings - providing the rental industry with property maintenance plans, gas safety care programmes, 24/7 365-day emergency maintenance cover, utility switching, EPCs and PAT testing.
