A property has to endure the harshest of elements during the winter months – brickwork, roofing, guttering and garden fences all take a battering.

As we mentioned in our tenants spring property maintenance, the onset of the calmer weather provides the opportunity to evaluate things and see if the property needs attention.

"Stronger. Together." That’s the philosophy of Sky Blue Homes when it comes to supporting the local community, and truly giving something back. 

Sky Blue Homes has joined forces with the Greggs Foundation and we’re now one of the list of official supporters of the Breakfast Club scheme that aims to give school children across the country the best possible start to the day. 

It is a landlord’s responsibility to make sure the property they’re renting out is safe and in a fit-for-purpose condition for their tenants. But, that doesn’t mean a tenant can’t be vigilant for any potential problems developing and generally doing their bit too.

Landlords are responsible for ensuring the safety of their tenants and this is especially important when it comes to the electrical wiring infrastructure of a property.

From April 1 2021 it will be a requirement that all existing private tenancies comply with the new Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 and undergo a EICR.

What passes as ‘clean’ can be open to interpretation for many, indeed people often don’t have time to concentrate on all areas of their flat or house, ALL of the time, and understandably so.

Although Sky Blue Homes doesn't have a strict policy when it comes to a major deep clean at the end of a tenancy, we do ask for a property to be in the same state of cleanliness as when the tenant first moved in.
