Keep a record of repairs
A record of repairs and maintenance shows that a building has been well cared for. It will also help and reassure potential buyers.
You should keep:
- maintenance inspection checklists
- records of repair work carried out
- details of the tradespeople or contractors and any professionals involved
- a note of the dates of the work
- invoices detailing the costs
It’s also useful to take photos before, during and after the repairs.
