Winter is here…
The impending change to Daylight Saving Time this coming weekend signals an important time of the year for our Property Managers. Not to do with the extra hour we will all gain, but to do with the onset of the British wintertime.
The winter climes bring up issues which have been put to bed over the summer months. Our tenants are turning on their heating for the first time to cope with the chilly conditions, which can bring up the need for boiler servicing and/or repairs.
In order to ensure that our tenants have a stress free (and warm) transition we have recently completed an audit and service of our stock of portable heaters, ensuring that they have all had a Portable Appliance Test. Whilst we always try to ensure that any problems are dealt with as quickly as possible, using a band of qualified and trusted contractors, there is occasionally the need for a heater to be supplied in the interim.
We are all hoping that this winter will be short and not too cold, but we are also prepared and ready to deal with any problems which do arise!
