Improving landlord access to electricians


A new partnership from tradesmen quality mark TrustMark and insurance firm Endsleigh means landlords looking to carry out home improvements to their rented properties can search with ease for traders with the right skills and qualifications.


The partnership will encourage Ensleigh's landlord and letting agent customers to use TrustMark's database of reliable tradespeople, currently numbering at around 14,500 UK-wide and still growing. A survey from the insurance firm looking at 1500 landlords found that landlords spend upwards of £1000 a year on maintenance and repair, and those without letting agents likely to pay twice as much.


Endsleigh Lettings and Landlords manager Marcus Latchford called the partnership "a great example of how we continually grow our commitment to supporting landlords" and added:


"Not only can we offer landlords the chance to reduce their risk through thorough tenant referencing checks to ensure their potential tenants are suitable, or by offering insurance for events unique to landlords, but we can now recommend the TrustMark brand to all landlords to raise awareness of using trusted and reliable tradesmen to ensure that they and their tenants are protected."


Meanwhile TrustMark chairman Liz Male said: "We hope that more landlords will now recognise the importance of using quality and reputable firms to help protect their most valuable assets. TrustMark is a national quality badge that tradespeople can show to landlords, proving that they have been properly assessed and inspected and will work to Government-endorsed standards."
