What Is a Caretaker?
Caretakers are professionals that visit a tenancy on a regular basis to ensure that the property is being operated in line with the guidance given by the owners or managers. These goals can be to maintain the property so that issues are fixed before they become major problems, or it can be to ensure that the property or site is an attractive space at all times.
The Advantages of Hiring a Headway UK Caretaker
If you book our caretaker service, we will regularly monitor your property, this is normally on a monthly basis, but can be more frequently if required. Our caretaker will inspect your property and carry out minor repairs, such as fixing faulty taps, cutting grass, fixing doors, painting, cleaning drains, washing windows and checking smoke alarms. If there are any bigger issues, we will let you know what the problem is, and what solutions we can offer to fix it. This service means that you do not have to deal with multiple service providers, as we have a roster of highly skilled tradespeople that we work with on a regular basis. So if your property has a plumbing problem, we have a local professional who can fix it quickly, so that your tenants are not inconvenienced.
