“Minor repairs and maintenance” of the apartment are the issues that relate to minor faults, which may occur during use, e.g. loosen door handle, worn tap joint, etc. There are many such small things, which with little own contribution the tenant can easily afford to handle. The appearance of this type of faults is due to the fact that something is normally used and has to be normally maintained.
“Maintenance” of the property is a use of appropriate cleaning agents, performing periodical cleaning of sewage pipes, cleaning windows and doors, replacement of cartridges in the kitchen hood, joints, rings, etc. What is also a maintenance – an annual review of ventilation pipes and the gas installation and appliances, if the apartment is equipped with it.
It is important that the tenant is aware, that if he is not able to cope, or would not know how to fix a particular failure, he should contact us. We have already dealt with most of the things that may happen in an apartment, so we will be happy to share these ideas and suggest some proven solutions.
Importantly, the building administration is carrying out the periodic reviews of the existing common installations: gas, heating, ventilation, or electricity, that are under the responsibility of the building administrator. In the event of such inspection, the tenant is obliged to let the inspection into the flat to carry out such control. If for any reasons the tenant is not present at the flat during the inspection, he risks to be charged for organizing an inspection at another time.
