As any landlord knows, void periods are always something to be avoided, or kept to an absolute minimum wherever possible. 

While they are part and parcel of today’s buy-to-let business, those periods when a property is empty are periods when they are not bringing in income. Void periods can be minimised by planning for the times when they are empty and working with a trusted local company to make sure they are ready to be used again as quickly as possible.

GB Electrical & Building services Ltd can help avoid prolonged void periods and avoid the potential associated costs, such as:

  • Utility bills
  • Frequently vetting potential new tenants
  • Remarketing costs
  • Council tax
  • Maintenance work 
  • Time and effort by the landlord

Planned maintenance

Keeping a portfolio well maintained can prove to be a worthwhile investment as it will reduce the length of time the property or properties stay unoccupied for considerably.

Bathrooms and kitchens can often have the biggest impact for tenants who are more discerning than ever before, with expectations and a sheer range of choice in the rental market that today are both at very high levels.


Tailored to your property management needs

GB Electrical & Building Services Ltd carry out every type of planned maintenance, from simple kitchen projects to much larger scale refurbishment projects across multiple properties. We can do this using our dedicated teams, each of which is fully accredited, time served and locally reputable, helping our clients to maximise their tenancies and avoid the problem of expensive void properties.

Our reputation is built around our ability to plan and deliver all types of planned work by working closely with our clients and delivering the quality and organisation they insist upon. Our thirty years of experience has allowed us to build excellent relationships with local suppliers, giving us (and therefore our clients too) access to the best materials and the most competitive buying rates in these times of ongoing uncertainty regarding materials and supply chains.

Minimising void time is an important aspect of any successful buy-to-let business plan. We help our clients to stay organised, get tenants into their properties promptly and to keep them well maintained and desirable for tenants who will want to stay for longer.
