Property Voids & Tenant Changeovers
Your property is both an investment and a source of income, so maximising availability and minimising loss of rent is vital. Wessex understand the need to turn around void properties as quickly as possible, while still taking advantage of the opportunity to make any necessary improvements without inconveniencing sitting tenants.
Our dedicated Voids Manager will take care of all changeover tasks through our team of skilled tradespeople, coordinating the work to minimise the disruption to your rental income and completing all activities as quickly as possible, and to the highest quality.
With prior understanding of your property Wessex will be well-placed to plan and execute the work required in the void period, but we will always complete an up-to-date property survey to ensure you know exactly what work is involved. Our Voids Manager will run the project centrally to eliminate the risks of works running over time and any inconvenience or loss of income from postponing occupancy dates.
The Wessex Property Care team have a wide range of skill sets and are able to offer a complete package for changeover projects. We also have the advantage of running an even more comprehensive suite of services across the group, allowing you to take complete advantage of any void periods.
Our basic package of clearance, cleaning, decorating, repairs and gas and/or electrical testing is an efficient way to keep your property running efficiently year-on-year. We can also assess the property for any more significant improvements that need to be made, or advise on changes in legislation that may require adjustments for fire or electrical safety, or accessibility requirements.
Wessex provide central management and coordination of all the experts required to carry out an effective changeover which makes this period far easier, cheaper and less disruptive for landlords and property managers.
All of our tradesmen work to a standard in accordance with the most up-to-date UK regulations, so all the work you have done, even to legacy systems, will be compliant and – where required – certified.
