Whether you are a landlord maintaining your assets or a contractor delivering a facilities management or maintenance service for a landlord, we can help. We specialise in drafting and procuring long term contracts which generate efficiencies for both parties.
Landlords want robust long term contracts in place with their service providers to maintain, repair and improve their assets. We have the expertise to help landlords select the right service providers and to appoint them under suitable forms of contract to ensure that performance targets are met, costs are reduced and efficiency is improved. Whether you are a central government landlord maintaining prisons, schools, infrastructure or hospitals; a public sector landlord maintaining public buildings or housing; or a private sector landlord improving your office or retail space or maintaining residential, student or hotel accommodation we can help you comply with your obligations to tenants and enhance the value of your assets.
We have helped public sector housing providers improve their relationships with their supply chain through sensible contract drafting. We have contracts to suit all your requirements from small refurbishment projects, lift replacement works through to major capital improvement programmes. We were appointed by Government to act as National Change Agent for Housing during the Decent Homes programme and through this appointment we have developed an in depth understanding of supporting landlords to improve efficiency.
We act as one stop legal service for landlords who want to procure long term contracts for responsive repairs and maintenance and can ensure that you obtain the right advice on how to consult with your tenants, how to procure in compliance with the public contracts regulations and how to deal with a change of service provider and the impact on transferring employees.
We understand that landlords also need to appoint service providers who will test, inspect and service their assets and we have suitable service level agreements for compliance requirements such as electrical servicing and testing, hearing and boiler inspections, legionella and water treatment as well as facilities management agreements for cleaning, security and concierge and estate management services. If you are a contractor bidding to deliver asset management services to the public sector we can support you in reviewing the tender documents and forms of contracts, recommend amendments and advising your bid team on risks. If successful we can advise you in negotiating the contract with your client to ensure that you are protected.
