Getting Quotes for Property Repairs
If you need to get repairs on a property that you own or manage, it is usually advisable to collect together a few different quotes so that you can see what is the going rate. This will give you an understanding of the market, and what you can expect to get for your money. If you are a property management agency, you might not have the time, however, if you are a property management company that manages blocks, it might actually be in your contract that you should collect different quotes so that the work you are providing on behalf of residents is value for money.
You should have a list of trusted traders, who you use on a regular basis. Once you have someone you trust, add them to the list – productive working relationships like this are beneficial to everyone involved. If you need anything urgently or at the last minute, these people will be more likely to be able to help and respond quickly.
