Christmas Special – Letting agent Edinburgh

Not long now till Christmas! Traditionally a quiet time of year for marketing teams at letting agents as most landlords and tenants put life changing decisions off until the new year (just wait for the massive influx if tenants looking to move in the first week of January after having a good look at their lives over the Christmas period! New Year, New you!). Not so quiet for property managers though as boilers fire up to 9 or 10 after months of minor use as the cold kicks in…this can be a shock to the system for more tired boilers who decide not to fire up and require property managers to come to the rescue and send round gas engineers to get homes roasty toasty again over the festive period.

Christmas -Many tenants leave the city

Christmas is also a time when many tenants leave the city and head home to mum and dads for a bit of R&R after a hectic semester or after burning the candle at both ends during the Christmas run in. Tenants should be aware that they cant just leave their property to freeze when they’re away. Boilers should be left on low so that water continues to flow through the pipes to avoid water sitting, pipes cracking and all hell breaking loose for the property and its neighbors!
