Vacant Properties

What you can do

This week, we are carrying on our e-work by engaging landlords/ladies with the topic of coronavirus-led property vacancies.

Indeed, the coronavirus has put an alt on some aspects of residential private property lettings, particularly moving in and out.  This has led to a relative increase in the stock of unoccupied or vacant properties.

As a ripple effect of coronavirus, many landlords/ladies may have found themselves with unoccupied or vacant properties since there is a rental fallout between the two sides of the rental market (supply and demand). 

Some of them are asking what they can do in such market conditions.

Other landlords/ladies who are better equipped and informed may have been advised by their letting and/or managing agents what to do. 

Other ones who do not have the necessary information to handle the situation may need some forms of support.

This week, Home Relief will be trying to e-work with those landlords/ladies who still do not know what to do and those who are under informed to find out the possible answers to vacant properties as the coronavirus pandemic lasts.

Our distance working session will help them to tackle the following issues:

√ Inspections

√ Upkeep of the property

√ Security

√ Inside property maintenance

√ Prevention and management of damages and losses, etc

We are as well going to share online resources regarding vacant or unoccupied properties.  These resources will be both from the residential private property sector and the UK gorvernment’s guidance related to property maintenance during the Covid-19 national emergency. 

Additionally, landlords/ladies will have the opportunity to raise issues related to their individual property cases as the session will be customised.

Need to know more about what to do with unoccupied or vacant properties, please e-work with Home Relief.

If you are looking for an affordable location and home, Home Relief is the people dealing with affordable homes you could consider in your property searches and enquiries.

Virtual Property Services

This post is about a limited number of services that Home Relief is organising for landlords/ladies and renters in relation to the current coronavirus situation.

Before saying something about these services, let us hope that landlords/ladies and renters are keeping themselves healthy and safe as the confinement goes on.

Virtual Property Services for Landlords/ladies

For those landlords/ladies who are in need or would like to know what is going at Home Relief, we would like to inform you that Home Relief is only taking online enquiries and queries during this restricted period of Covid-19. 

We can virtually offer a limited number of landlord/lady services such as virtual viewings, valuations, maintenance, etc. 

In relation to the coronavirus pandemic situation itself, we can provide advice and information about disinfecting your rental property.

We are as well reiterating and can customise the health and safety measures and guidance given by the UK government, the NHS as well as by the private residential property industry to adapt them to your circumstances and the conditions of your rental property.

Virtual Property Services for Renters

As you probably know, Home Relief provides all-round residential property services principled by social goals with the aim of reducing housing deprivation for low income people and families.  

Our property relief service does not only provide home seekers and buyers with advice to access a home to live, but also help them to help themselves in effectively running their lives.  

One of the ways of supporting these people and families to effectively run their lives is to support them at this critical time of the coronavirus lockdown by providing them with a virtual service to ease pressure.

Our virtual property services for renters include information on rents determination, property locations, referencing criteria, rental market information, vacancies, rental contracts, etc. 

Like for landlords/ladies, we can advise and inform renters about the health and safety at home as provided by the UK government, the NHS and the private residential property sector.

At the moment, we know that many people (including renters) have lost their earning capacity and income due to the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic.  To support those renters suffering from these effects, we can provide leads and information on income recovery schemes, deposits and rent payment problems. 

The above named coronavirus-related income advice service is in line with the provision of the UK Government on the matter and the newly set up available rental help by many funders on the market to help homeless and renters who are experienced financial hardships due to the coronavirus impacts and restrictions.

Need help and advice related to private residential property letting and rental during the coronavirus pandemic period, virtually work with Home Relief.

If you are looking for an affordable location and home, Home Relief is the people dealing with affordable homes you could consider in your property searches and enquiries.

Engaging Landlords/ladies and Renters during the Coronavirus Crisis

We hope that all landlords/ladies and renters had a healthy and safe Easter week end.

We are carrying on to virtually support landlords/ladies and renters during the coronavirus pandemic.  This virtual engagement is regardless of whether a landlord/lady or renter has been self-isolated or shielded or confined or locked down.

We trust that landlords/ladies and renters are helping each other by sharing the practicals about disinfecting the Covid-19 germs from their homes. 

Last week, we discussed about ways of making homes healthy and safe by cleaning areas of property that may be the channels of transmission for the traces of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Let us expect that those anti-coronavirus fixers related to home cleaning are being put into action.  Those who have new tips and hints on the matter, it would be good to share them in the interest of saving lives.

Like you, we too are following the UK Government’s anti-coronavirus instructions, the NHS and the World Health Organisation guidance, the residential private property industry’s advice on the same matter. 

We shall continue to engage with you on any matter regarding the health, safety and security of yourselves and everybody making the sector at this turbulent time. 

The health and sanitation of landlords/ladies and renters are a parcel of our mission and priority than anything else.  We are on their side when it comes to health and safety.

If any of you has any queries or questions about any aspects of residential private property management and maintenance related to the Covid-19 crisis, please do not hesitate to text or email or phone or complete the contact form.  We will respond to you and try to be supportive as much as we can.  Where our competence will be limited we shall lead you to the relevant body or expertise or source of information.

It is with a great appreciation that you understand that we keep our communication with you free of physical contact during the coronavirus pandemic crisis.

We thank you for your loyalty.

Coronavirus and Essential Private Property Rental Maintenance

Coronavirus and Essential Property Maintenance

How to keep essential cleaning for private property rental maintenance within the context of anti-coronavirus measures

At the moment, we are in the context of e-following the UK government advice and the NHS guidance in order to protect each other against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.  In this context, it is required to everybody to make sure that they clean any potential traces of Covid-19 germs or viruses in their property from the entrance to the inside as well as around the building.  This should be done knowingly or unknowingly that the Covid-19 can survive on hard surfaces for up to a week.

Because of this non-clinical decontamination requirement for collective protection from the coronavirus, we are going to follow on this as part of essential or perhaps life-saving cleaning duties making the essential property maintenance.  This essential cleaning includes household items, shopping, clothes and shoes. 

Within the private rental property maintenance, there are many aspects.  However, in the context of this week’s e-exercise with landlords/ladies and renters, we are going to focus on the cleaning elements related to anti-coronavirus pandemic.  We are going to e-discuss with landlords/ladies and tenants this cleaning matter.

At the moment, landlords/ladies may be spending money to decontaminate their properties from any potential traces of coronavirus germs or strains.  They may be spending on cleaning products and materials necessary either to keep their rented properties or the one they reside free from any traces of Covid-19 germs.  Some of them may be sharing information and good practices on this matter with their tenants in the interest of public health protection.

In this spending process, they may encounter difficulties between essential and non-essential spending in order to protect themselves and people around them.  To ease this process for them and tenants, we will be e-discussing with them the following:

√ Essential and non-essential spending items in their cleaning budgets regarding the anti-coronavirus measures

√ Recommended key cleaning products and techniques to get rid of the traces of coronavirus hazards

√ Areas of properties to clean and wipe to disinfect them from Covid-19 germs

√ Protective equipment and clothes for this kind of anti-coronavirus cleaning work

√ The weekly or monthly cleaning budget for protection against coronavirus

√ Stores and shops where to purchase at affordable prices essental cleaning products as well as where to get information and advice

Etc.

In addition to the above, we are going to share some good cleaning practices, stories, experiences, online sources, resources (such as videos) and leads regarding non-clinical decontamination of properties from Covid-19 germs.

This week, we are working with them via ONLY phone, text, email and contact form to try to exchange ideas and good practices about essential cleaning in the critical context of non-clinical decontamination of private reantal properties from the traces or strains of coronavirus pandemic.

Like many of us, renters and landlords/ladies are searching for the best possible way of cleaning household items and of carrying out preventive personnal hygiene against the Covid-19.

Need to e-discuss your property cleaning matter to get rid of the Covid-19 risk factor, please do not hesitate to work with Home Relief.
