When To DIY And When To Hire Someone To Fix Your Buy-To-Let

It happens to every landlord – the tenant calls up and says a handle is not closing a window properly or the water is too tepid. Many landlords have a small rucksack and a toolkit. This often includes spanners, screwdrivers, a hammer, some tape, WD-40, and some specific tools depending on the fixtures of your opened rental accommodation.

This is essential for fixing basic issues like loose handles and rubber widgets for windows etcetera as opposed to issues like a failure of the boiler or electrics where hiring a tradesman is essential if a few DIY tests do not solve the problem.

Living in proximity to your property helps a great deal in being able to fix certain issues yourself, and if you have a technical or manual trades background, you can fix more issues yourself. If this isn’t the case, or your properties are a longer distance away, then resorting to help can be the more helpful solution, albeit the costly one, especially for a more minor or trivial problem.
