How Facilities Management Companies help the UK Property Industry

As an estate agency your clients may expect you to manage every aspect of their estate; from the letting/selling of the property, dealing with the contracts, ensuring that the property is run smoothly and that any problems which may arise are dealt with quickly and efficiently. Your role is to make this, often quite stressful, job as easy and pain free as possible for your clients.

With so many different responsibilities, it can often be a challenge for you as an estate agent to ensure that everything is done to the level that your clients expect, and which you hold yourself to. It is here that a facilities management company, like MSL, can add real value to your business. Facilities management companies specialise in providing the highest level of service possible in all aspects of facilities management; from assessing all your properties for any potential maintenance issues that may arise, thus eliminating huge costs that could be incurred by reactive maintenance charges, to offering a one-stop point of contact who are on-hand 24/7 to deal with any emergency maintenance situations that may occur e.g. boiler breakdown. They will then arrange for a qualified engineer visits the property promptly to sort the problem out.

By ensuring that these crucial tasks are carefully managed and acted upon quickly, this allows you and employees to focus on other core areas of your business, with a net result of you providing a higher quality service to your clients.
