Repairs and maintenance

Through our experienced and skilled teams, we provide a variety of repairs and maintenance services.

Along with working on homes between tenancies, we also provide a 24/7 response service, so no matter what time of day or night it is, if there’s an emergency repair, we can deal with it. We have our own in-house Westward Property Services, our main contractor MD Group and a few specialist contractors across the south west.

We work to offer solutions to ensure that value for money is achieved. We are always happy to offer advice and help where needed.
