Landlord Causes of Stress:
Handling maintenance issues Solving maintenance issues can be a significant cause of stress for landlords. Keeping the property and the tenant safe is a landlord responsibility, but arranging maintenance work can be tricky, particularly for emergencies that require a fast response. 59% of landlords revealed they found managing maintenance issues to be moderately or extremely difficult. Specifically, getting a good price from contractors proved most challenging, with 78% of landlords finding this difficult. A close second was finding a reliable contractor at 72% (UK Landlord Survey 2021). Preparing a list of reliable tradespeople makes things much easier. We recommend having at least two dependable professionals for each maintenance area. Whether a plumber, electrician or gardener, relying on a single contractor is risky. And if they’re good at their job, they aren’t likely to be available at short notice. .If it’s a big emergency – like a burst pipe or broken boiler – Home Emergency Cover is a real lifesaver. Instead of contacting you, your tenant can ring the emergency helpline and get a contractor out straight away.
