Vacant Property Inspections

A lot of owners are not aware that the vast majority of insurance companies will only provide insurance cover for unoccupied properties if they are regularly inspected. Regular inspection can can mean anything from once a week to once a month depending on the insurance policy and if any damage does occur without inspection in place, the owner can receive an unexpected bill.

Our maintenance team offer vacant property inspectons that cover private residential property, office premises and sites

Inspections are charged at £25.00 +VAT per visit within the Newcaslte city area and £55.00 +VAT in surrounding areas and consists of the following:

  • Security checks to ensure the property remains locked and secure
  • Any emergency repairs found upon inspection
  • An internal visual inspection of surface pipework for leaks, gas boilers and all windows
  • An external visual inspection of roofs and guttering, condition of the garden, outbuildings and sheds if appropriate
  • Regular gas and electric meter readings
  • Inspections for graffiti, vandalism or malicious damage
  • Regular reports to the owner on the condition of their property and garden/outbuildings

Maintenance and emergency information

Our property managers are happy to help your tenants with maintenance problems and queries. We can tell them directly how to sort out a minor problem, send round our in-house team, or arrange for other contractors to carry out repairs.

At the other end of the scale, we have a 24hr emergency helpline. We do ask tenants to show some common sense about this – not using it, for example, for problems that could easily wait until the next working day.
