It is important that all buildings are reviewed regularly to maintain their functionality as part of on going property asset management. Buildings are best thought of as a collection of component parts that have a varying life expectancy depending upon their frequency of use, though these components usually have a shorter life span than the building as a whole.
Maintenance management is therefore the reviewing of all these component parts to ensure their timely replacement.
Maintenance management can aid a Landlord plan ahead for the future of their properties. Long term this can vastly reduce the cost of maintaining properties; costly repair bills are avoided as maintenance jobs are carried out before long term damage is caused.
