Any housing association, multi-property landlord or letting agency knows that an empty (or void) property is one that isn’t doing what they need it to:

  • An empty property isn’t financially viable for any business,  
  • It might be at risk of falling into disrepair if left empty, 

To minimise the above it is important to ensure those empty properties are bought back to a lettable standard as soon as they become vacant. 

Sometimes that might not be a big undertaking, but it can often be a time consuming one, particularly if a range of different trades/jobs are needed. 

One of the key benefits of working with GB Electrical & Building Services Ltd is our ability to do it all, from a simple lock change to complete multi-property refurbishments. 

Our trusted local teams of kitchen & bathroom fitters, painters, decorators, landscapers as well as fully accredited heating, gas and electrical engineers can all work as one with a common goal: 

– Getting void properties restored to their original glory, safe, compliant and ready to move into sooner rather than later… 


What makes Good Property Management?

The most important quality we have, for every void property job is our positive, can-do attitude.  

We know we are there to get the job done. Often the unexpected happens, deadlines change, plans alter and any number of things can change. 

That is a normal part of property management, when you are given the responsibility of making a property safe, compliant and looking its best then it’s important to have the following qualities: 

  • Resourcefulness 
  • Adaptability 
  • The ability to deliver work within set timescales 
  • The size and scope to deliver a wide range of work to the highest standards 
  • The ability to work on one property, or one hundred 


The All-In-One Solution that Works

A property management service capable of doing everything needed, is one of the most useful and worthwhile tools at our client’s disposal. 

Our experience in void property management also tells us that clients really appreciate open lines of communication and a close, positive working relationship. 

Currently, in early 2022, one of our void property management projects involves collaboration with Stonewater Housing Association. We have been trusted with the task of bringing a large number of their properties back to the standard they are well known for and ready for new tenants. 

An important part of this project is the installation of brand new kitchens and bathrooms working to an important early spring deadline. 

Anyone who has ever refurbished a property knows all too well that bathroom and kitchen renovation can involve plumbing, heating, electrical work, and specialist fitters, painters and decorators to name just a few… 

Multiply that by a large number of properties and it is easy to see how void property management can be a challenge without the right support in place. 

– GB Electrical & Building Services Ltd aim to deliver that support, with our versatile teams, quick response times and fast turnarounds, all at a fair price.  

That philosophy is enabling us to grow our property management division and expand our services beyond Herefordshire.
