Landlord/Letting Maintenance Service


How can we help landlords?


We at SCFS (CONTRACTS) Ltd understand all landlords need quick responding and reliable tradesmen to correct any issues with their properties. We would be able to do the following for you.



What are our charges?

Our pricing is simple, straightforward and competitive. There is a minimum charge which covers the first hour and then a charge for each additional quarter of an hour. We are also happy to provide fixed price quotes – please contact us for a free no obligation quotation.


Letting agents

Many landlords and tenants can easily overlook regular maintenance including minor repairs, for example a minor problem such as a blocked gutter can often lead to major water ingress and subsequent major repairs. Good maintenance practice will ensure that the building performs well, whilst remaining in a good state of repair.


There are three types of maintenance:


Reactive Maintenance

This covers the unknown factors in building maintenance. Even if an effective maintenance plan exists you will always have the unexpected problem, which requires immediate action (Rapid Response), for example burst pipes, boarding up windows, fire damage to name a few.


Planned Maintenance

This covers maintenance items, which are identified in sufficient time for them to be cost and programmed into a plan of works, which can be scheduled over a predetermined period e.g. 1 year, 5 years or 10 years.


This area can be subject to budget pressures and occasionally decisions have to be made, but Landlords and Tenants must remember the need to cover Health & Safety issues.


Cyclical Maintenance

This is work, which can be specified and completed at predetermined periods. It is a proactive form of maintenance e.g. treatment of external timber and maintaining a garden, which can be carried out to cause the least inconvenience.




How quickly can we come out I hear you ask?

We can offer an emergency call out Rapid Response service that would be with you within two hours. However when it comes to standard maintenance work, we aim to be as flexible as possible, providing a service that is convenient for you.


Our Working Hours

Normal working hours for our handyperson service is Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. We can also offer an evening, weekend and bank holiday service with prior arrangement.
