Hannah McCartan of https://www.mccartanlettings.co.uk talks about some of the planned maintenance costs landlords in Swansea need to consider when letting properties.

Planning for the unexpected … maintenance?

Yes absolutely essential, it comes back to making sure from a maintenance point of view your property is in the best possible condition it can be. So if you know that you have a drip under the sink and you’ve got a little bucket capturing it, get that fixed t begin with.

If your boiler hasn’t been serviced for a while get the full works done on it. Make sure all the windows are in order and the oven works well too.

You need to bear in mind that someone new coming in to live in your property; what are they going to expect for the money that they are paying?

So minimise the issues from the beginning. Going forward it’s about dealing with the issues as they arrive, making sure that you have cash-flow to deal with these things.

Hopefully, there won’t be any issues; but it’s always the unexpected that catches us out.
