Landlord Property Services Northampton
As part of our One Stop Shop Landlord property services Northampton we we’re contacted by a Landlord who lives in Dunstable but had recently evicted a tenant from their rental property in Northampton. The tenant had got behind on their rent and once the landlord managed to gain access they were horrified at what they found. The flat had been neglected, furniture and rubbish had been left behind and the smell from smoke, nicotine, pet urine and general filth was more than the landlord could bare. Once they got the furniture and rubbish removed they contacted us as they didn’t want the hassle of juggling with different contractors and more importantly they wanted a company they could trust.
I met with the client at the flat and ascertained their requirements, with a rental property it’s easy to get carried away with what you want to do with the property but It’s my job to advise the client to ensure they get the best return on their investment. Take a look at the below video to see what we found when we first entered the flat.
The landlord considered replacing the kitchen units and flooring which would have been an extra expense plus put several weeks on the completion date. I suggested we try and save the kitchen and flooring with a deep clean, possibly with a few minor repairs to the units. We could then assess the situation, the potential savings out weighed the costs of a deep clean. As you can see the flat was covered in grease, smoke and nicotine, therefore we needed to clean the walls and ceilings with sugar soap and then stain block throughout prior to painting.
This week we put to work cleaning all of the above, once the walls were cleaned with Sugar Soap we rinsed and dried it off then stained blocked throughout. Our client visited this week to check on our progress and she was thrilled with our progress, she text me to say “Flat miraculous! Well done, like a different place and the smell has gone to. You can see our progress below:
