As a landlord, one of the key issues in ensuring satisfied tenants is keeping the fixtures, fittings and most importantly, electrical appliances in your properties in proper working order. A good relationship with your tenants is of the utmost importance to any landlord, and therefore it is crucial that the appliances you provide are maintained and function to the correct standard throughout the tenancy.

White goods such as fridges, washing machines and ovens are among the most relied-upon items in homes today, so if they break down or develop a fault it can cause a huge inconvenience that your tenants will no doubt want to be rectified promptly. As many landlords work full-time, own properties in a number of cities or even live out of the country, it may not be easy for you to attend yourself to inspect or fix the problem.


In cases such as this it may seem that the simplest option is to purchase a new appliance to replace the faulty one. However, the outlay for new items such as a cooker, fridge-freezer or washing machine can run into hundreds of pounds (even thousands in high-end rentals) as well as further expense incurred in organising its installation. A faulty or broken appliance is very often caused by the failure of one part which is often quick and easy to replace, and which will be far less expensive, as well as more economical, to replace than the entire appliance.


Given the current financial climate, we are all looking to minimise expenditure wherever possible and landlords are not excluded from this. With the huge availability of rental properties currently on the market, there is added pressure to be competitive with rental prices and what you can offer, and landlords will be keen to save costs without cutting corners. It therefore makes financial sense for landlords to repair faulty appliances, and home repair services such as Repaircare are tailored to meet these needs.

Repaircare have a network of over 500 locally-based and fully trained appliance engineers operating throughout England, Scotland and Wales, so no matter how far you are from your property you can book a home appliance repair in any area.

Their service offers fixed price repairs on all white goods, which start at just £70 including parts, labour and call-out; a fraction of the cost of a new appliance. Plus, you’re saved the trouble of disposing of the old appliance. All of their repairs are guaranteed, so you and your tenants are still assured peace of mind once your appliance is back up and running.
