Keep your properties in excellent condition with regular, planned maintenance

Whether you are a commercial or residential landlord, property manager or facilities manager, you’ll know that regular, planned maintenance for your properties is essential. It keeps your tenants happy, prolongs the life of your properties and shows that you are a responsible landlord.

At Orchard Building Solutions, we take the hassle out of planned property maintenance by finding the contractors and getting the work done for you. We provide a wide range of maintenance services to keep things running smoothly

Pre-Tenancy Checks

Minimise void periods between tenancies with a Pre-Tenancy Check. One of our engineers will attend your vacant property at the end of a tenancy to do a visual check and provide you with a report. Pre-Tenancy Checks include:

  • Electric and gas meter readings
  • Visually checking that the heating, plumbing, electrics and lighting work properly
  • Checking that smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are fitted and working
  • Checking windows and window locks for damage
  • Noting the location of the stopcock, light switches, phone and satellite sockets

If anything needs fixing, we will supply you with a no-obligation quote to do the repairs. Pre-Tenancy Checks provide you with peace of mind and give you the opportunity to get minor repairs done quickly before a new tenant takes occupancy.

External and Internal Redecoration

A regular redecoration programme for both the internal and external areas of your properties will keep them in good order and help protect them against wear and tear or adverse weather. Most commonly, leases require redecoration every five years but we can work within whatever timeframe you need.

Annual Gas Safety and Electrical Safety Tests

It’s a legal requirement for residential landlords to have annual gas inspections in their properties, so don’t put your tenants at risk. We offer annual gas safety checks with Gas Safe registered engineers, who can also carry out boiler servicing and related repairs.

We recommend regular electrical safety testing too and offer PAT testing and inspections by our NICEIC registered engineers, as well as associated servicing and repairs.

Programmed Garden Maintenance

Keep your gardens in great shape with regular, programmed garden maintenance. From small residential blocks, through to larger blocks, business or retail parks, we will cut the grass, de-litter, de-weed and keep the garden areas looking attractive and tidy. We can also offer garden landscaping.

Fire Risk and Health and Safety Works

Be sure that your residential or commercial property meets fire regulations with a regular Fire Risk Assessment. We can also carry out monthly ‘flick’ tests to check that your emergency lighting is working properly, to give you and your tenants peace of mind.

Guttering and Drainage

Prevent blocked or overflowing drains and gutters with our regular cleaning service. We will clear all gutters and drains and sweep away leaves and other debris that could cause blockages. Depending on the size and location of the property, you may need quarterly cleaning or a more frequent service – we will tailor it to suit your needs.

No matter what your major project management requirements, your account manager will be your one point of contact and will keep you updated on the works, providing you with regular photos and reports. If you need to chase us, we are not doing our job properly!
