The most effective approach to maintaining a larger property is to implement a planned maintenance programme. These are designed to ensure that any potential issues are dealt with before a problem occurs, reducing the amount of reactive maintenance and allowing budgets to be planned in advance.
In commercial property, planned maintenance programmes are beneficial to both landlords and tenants. For landlords, it aids in protecting the building’s condition, thereby ensuring their investment does not fall into disrepair. For tenants, it aids in reducing the size of a potential dilapidations claim at the end of the lease term.
How we can help
We understand that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to maintenance planning is inappropriate and planned maintenance should consider how a client owns or manages the property and whether there are upcoming lease events that may influence the programme for repairs.
Whilst our reports provide an overview of the likely maintenance costs associated with an asset over a fixed term of years, they are also practical documents with sufficient detail to allow a maintenance contractor to understand the most appropriate approach to repair.
