Maintenance and Repairs

Legally, landlords are required to maintain or repair:

  • Problems with drainage and the supply of water.
  • The structure and exterior of the property (including walls, windows, external doors and stairs, external garden area, and roof)
  • Drains, gutters and external pipes
  • Basins, sinks, baths and toilets
  • Gas appliances
  • Electric wiring
  • Heating and hot water
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms
  • Damp and mould (dependent on the cause)

With an in-house maintenance team, we are well equipped to meet the maintenance requirements. We have a very good contact list of suppliers and tradesmen which enable us to allocate the jobs if they require professional or licenced assistance thereby resolving the maintenance issues with the considerable lead time.

Inventory Team

We have in house qualified staffs to carry out Inventory checks, Inspection, and end of tenancy checkout inspections. Our Inventory reports are digital with over hundreds of images to ensure that the Landlord has all the proof to claim against any damages at the end of the tenancy.

HMO Application Submission

A house in multiple occupation (HMO) is a property rented out by at least 3 people forming more than one 'household', who share facilities like the bathroom and cooking facilities.

An HMO must have a licence if it is occupied by 5 or more people. A council can also include other types of HMOs for licensing.

Northwest Homes offers the submission of HMO Licence on behalf of the Landlord by obtaining all the relevant documents and valid certificates.


With a wealth of local experience, a database of prospective buyers and a detailed knowledge of the Preston market, our team will guide you through the selling process, provide regular progress updates and help you find the right buyer and the right price.

Our expert evaluation officers consider various factors on existing condition and give you a comprehensive property valuation report where you can learn the strengths and weaknesses of your property, so you know which areas to improve.
