Property Maintenance Reports
Maintenance Assessment and Scheduling
Maintenance is often forgotten in New Zealand, left until it HAS to be done or the property is being sold! Interestingly I estimate people spend more on maintaining their cars in a single year than they do their house … what does that say about our priorities!
My observation is that a well maintained property fetches a higher price than one that is not … I note that there are less defects in a well maintained property
What is the process? Initially we will get hold of the Property File from the Council, gather in a set of plans, prior to inspecting the building/s.
Once we have completed the inspection a report is written within it, it will contain the following:
- What condition the property is currently in.
- What maintenance is required.
- Prioritising the maintenance.
- Creating a schedule to go forward with.
The long-term benefits of having a maintenance schedule, is being able to plan and budget for the tasks to be carried out, less down time ‘fixing urgent issues’ and having a higher quality asset. This is particularly useful whether you manage 1 or 20 properties.
We can sit down with you and discuss the report/s and how to go forward from that point.
