  • Undertaking a regular walk through the property to verify that there is no external damage e.g. broken roof tiles, graffiti, loose guttering, leaking overflow pipes

  • Undertaking a regular walk through of the property to verify that there is no internal damage e.g. leaks, areas of dampness, loose plastering

  • Keeping the property clean and organised
