Landlord's Area

Are you a landlord with a property (or properties) in Hampshire?

Staying on top of the heating and plumbing systems in a house you don’t live in is a challenge. Often it’s a job that falls to the bottom of the list when there are other tenant requests coming in thick and fast.

Until something goes wrong, that is…

Then come the calls, the waits and the growing complaints from disgruntled tenants until eventually, the bill.

In an ideal world you’d probably have someone you can rely on to fix any issue with heating or plumbing quickly and reliably. More importantly, they’d make it their job to keep an eye on your property’s plumbing throughout the year, so you don’t have to.

Having worked with landlords for many years, we’ve come to recognise the difficulties and frustrations you face. Off the back of that, we’ve made it our mission to go above and beyond and be the very engineers you dream of in your ‘ideal world’.

But first things first, that gas safety certificate.

Gas safety certificate

As you know, it’s a legal requirement for any rented property to renew its gas safety certificate every year. In many ways it’s the MOT of the buy-to-let world.

Before you do anything else, make sure the engineer who checks your system is Gas Safety Registered like we are, otherwise the certificate they produce won’t be worth the paper it’s printed on. They should also carry out a tightness test on your property’s pipework as a standard part of their checks. Ask to find out.

Luckily, here at Upsher we are not only Gas Safety Registered, but we take the time to put every part of your property’s heating and plumbing system through its paces as a matter of course when we visit for your annual check.

All year round support

Maybe you live far away from your property, perhaps you have a portfolio that leaves you feeling out of control, or maybe – like most of us – you just have too much on your plate to stay ‘in the know’ about every aspect of your property’s heating and plumbing needs.

We pride ourselves on getting to know every property we visit inside out, as if it were our own.

In doing so, we make ourselves far more helpful than simply being the engineer who signs off your Gas Safety Certificate once a year. Instead, we become your go-to guys should ever an issue arise, who know exactly what the problem will be and the best way to fix it.

More than that, if you book your property in for a service as part of your annual gas safety check, we’ll be in a position to maintain your system so it’s in top condition for the next 12 months (and beyond).

As you’ll see from the services listed here on the website, we carry out every kind of repair and installation; no job is too small. So you’ll never be left searching for a suitably qualified engineer should we flag up something that needs attention; we’ll happily do it ourselves!

No jargon

Any work we recommend will always be explained clearly in a fully itemised quotation before you agree to anything.

Once we’ve got the job done, we’ll leave you with a plain speaking report explaining exactly what works we carried out and why, so you’re always ‘in the loop’ about where your property’s heating and plumbing systems are at.

To book your property in for a boiler service, Gas Safety check, or even just to chat through what we can do for you, give us a ring on 01256 760 617 today.

Upsher’s trusty mascot, Zola, is the first to greet Scott after a busy day at work and you’ll often see the two of them walking around Hook together.

She may even join Scott and Bryn as they carry out your work (but only if you don’t mind!).

Jade is the bright spark (excuse the pun) when it comes to all things marketing at Upsher.

Besides producing our videos, she’s the brains behind our social media, keeping you informed about all latest developments set to affect you from the heating and plumbing world.

Bryn’s an outstanding apprentice and friendly soul who takes great pride in his work. He is excelling both on the job and in his studies at Basingstoke College of Technology.

When Bryn isn’t tending to your faulty boiler or installing that swish new boiling water tap, he enjoys time spent with his young daughter and wife. Watch this space for the next go-to engineer in Hook!

Jill is the glue that holds everything together at Upsher; Bryn and myself rely on her infallible organisational skills to manage our diaries week on week.

By handling the admin side of the business, Jill allows us to crack on with what we do best: responding to your heating and plumbing needs quickly and thoroughly. Her’s is the warm voice that will give you every confidence in our service.

Jill’s years of experience as a secretary means she’s an asset (and friend) we certainly wouldn’t be without.
