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.Scaffolding-1
  • 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.
