Landlords, Are Your Rental Properties Ready For Winter?

Your rental property is one of the most expensive assets you own. Looking after it is essential and that means making sure it is protected over the winter months.

To help with that, at the beginning of November, Pennington launched our Preparing for Winter campaign which offers practical assistance to protect your rental property against the potential risks posed by the colder weather.

All private landlords can benefit, whether you are a Pennington client or not.

We have everything from advice and tips that you or your tenants can use, to the offer of carrying out a full maintenance inspection to identify any issues that may need attention before they become bigger – and more costly – problems.

We can advise on any work that is needed and discuss options with you. You may then choose to carry out the work yourself or of course, we can manage the whole thing for you with our trusted contractors.

  • Protect your asset against the cold weather
  • Identify work before it becomes a bigger problem and save money in the long run
  • Enhance your property’s value
  • Improve energy efficiency


To find out more or to arrange a maintenance inspection call Allyson Morgan, our Property Works Manager on 01394 337590 or email allyson@pennington-online.co.uk
