Summer Updates 2020 Our Tenants

Hope your all ok and staying safe.  2020 has been bizarre to say the least.

We are open and operating as usual.  Our team are still keeping everything going best they can given the current situation.

As things start to return to normal in the work place.  There are still areas which are proving difficult. Some of the team are still shielding themselves due to being vulnerable or living with people who are vulnerable.

Thank you to all our tenants who have been awesome through the whole pandemic keeping us updated on any changes, reporting maintenance etc.

Thank you to all our key workers who have kept going when we all stayed at home .

The updates are as follows

Maintenance : 

To report maintenance …please can you all email repairs to the main email info@r2Lsunderland.co.uk .We receive a lot of booking enquiries through social media this is making maintenance problems get over looked.  When reporting maintenance.  Please let us know a brief description of the issue.  Access arrangements and contact details so we can organise the work asap.

Be mindful of the situation and that the team who are working are prioritising emergency repairs.

The maintenance team are still struggling to get some materials and parts for repairs so the time scales are longer then average.

Tenant Like Manner:

There are maintenance responsibilities under the terms of the AST which are your responsibility . As part of taking care of the place in a tenant like manner.  These would include

  • Unblocking sinks , drains and toilets
  • Changing light bulbs and fuses
  • Keeping internal and external windows clean
  • Bleeding radiators
  • Keeping pressure topped up on boiler
  • Making sure your smoke alarm carbon detectors work and replacing batteries
  • Keeping external areas and gardens tidy
  • Making sure the property does not suffer from condensation mould
  • Pest control and ensuring the property does not suffer from pests
  • Day to day maintenance ( non professional maintenance)

The best way to judge what is tenant maintenance or landlord would be to assess the maintenance.  If you owned the property or lived in a council property, what maintenance would you fix yourself and what maintenance you would call a professional in.  (We cover the  professional side)
The tenant must take proper care of the place. He must, if he is going away for the winter, turn off the water and empty the boiler. He must clean the chimneys, where necessary, and also the windows. He must mend the electric light when it fuses. He must unstop the sink when it is blocked by his waste. In short, he must do the little jobs about the place which a reasonable tenant would do.  In addition, he must, of course, not damage the house, willfully or negligently; and he must see his family and guests do not damage it: and if they do, he must repair it.’ and ‘if the house falls into disrepair through fair wear and tear or lapse of time, or for any reason not caused by him, the tenant is not liable to repair it.’

Rubbish :

If your spending more time at home then your probably dealing with more waste. Please ensure you keep on top of disposing rubbish at the properties . Keeping on top of recycling the items that can be recycled will reduce the amount of waste going into the main waste bin

Pests 

Extra rubbish will attract pests.  Last summer we had a massive increase of pest problems in Sunderland.  Don’t make yourself a victim of this problem.  Please keep external areas tidy and free from rubbish. Don’t store rubbish internally or leave fresh foods in kitchen areas etc.. Just be mindful.

Property Visits 

We will be carrying out property visits a little different this year and full details will be sent to you next month .  This is in line with the current pandemic.  Property visits are a vital part of ensuring your stay with us is without problems but also for safety too.  I will email you all separate on how it will work.
