An empty, or vacant, social housing property is referred to as a void. Void repairs occur in between tenants as a way of repairing and maintaining a property before it is re-let. The main purpose of void repairs is to bring the property back to a lettable condition.
This ensures that new tenants can move into a fresh, quality and comfortable environment. Not only is this important for resident satisfaction, but it also works to maintain the property’s condition and longevity. By staying on top of issues that could become long-term problems, landlords can reduce costs associated with poorly managed facilities and faculty assets.
Void repairs need to be carried out to a high standard and maximum efficiency to reduce the turnaround time on empty properties.
