Why is it Important to Report a Maintenance Issue?
Don’t Turn a Blind Eye to Maintenance Problems, It Will Just Get Worse!
When problems arise in let properties, turning a blind eye to maintenance issues will not resolve them. It is therefore imperative that tenants and landlords work together to resolve such issues as quickly as possible.

Deciding to make a minor repair can often spare the expense and time of having to carry out major repairs. A good example of this is silicone around a shower or bath. This job can prevent water from penetrating the side of the tub and into the floor. In summary, making a minor repair can potentially prevent wood rot underneath a bath, potential unhappy neighbors below and cause a greater disruption to your tenants. After addressing all these issues, the silicone will still need to be replaced, so you are better addressing the problem in the first instance and saving yourself a great deal of hassle.
