Empty properties are a nuisance, mainly because they are not earning, and are a target for antisocial behaviour. The damp and cold weather also mean that they are more likely to fall into disrepair, costing you money, rather than doing the job of earning it!
Gerry Mason-Rolls from Stockton Heath based James Peacock Property explains;
“When a property is lived in over the winter it benefits from regular heating, keeping the pipework running and the home aired and healthy. If we ever have an empty property we visit twice a week to check that there are not any leaks, the building is secure and the boiler is working. It means as soon as a tenant is found they can move in immediately”.
With a property deficit in the area there really shouldn’t be a need for homes to be empty. In fact we’ve noticed a recent increase in demand for quality rental homes, with 90% of our first viewings resulting in lets and tenants waiting for availability.
We’re inviting any landlords with an empty property in Cheshire to get in touch and take advantage of our free winter check service when they sign up with us, perfect for landlords who live a distance from their property.
