Whether you are a home owner, a tenant or a landlord, there will undoubtably be times when you will need to leave your property vacant. Be it holiday periods, void periods between tenancies or moving out of a house prior to selling, the period of vacancy could range from a few weeks to a number of months. Crime statistics show that around 50% of all burglaries occur when a house or a flat is unoccupied. Government statistics also show that more than 600,000 buildings are currently empty in the UK and 200,000 of which have been idle for over 6 months.
The team from Aspire Residential will be looking to cycle the equivalent distance of going to Normandy and back ahead of Remembrance Sunday this year to raise funds in support of the Royal British Legion.
The Royal British Legion is at the heart of the national network that supports our armed forces community. It is the Country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 235,000 members, 110,000 volunteers and a wide network of partners and charities. Every year, the Legion calls on the nation to unite in commemorating Remembrance Sunday to honour the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces community, the British and Commonwealth veterans, the Allies that fought alongside us and the civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
Aspire Residential is pleased to announce its support for Worthing FoodBank, a charity that has been in operation in the local area since 2006. Foodbank is a system of collecting and distributing basic food and sanitary items for those in need and at times of crisis. It provides 3 days food supply and the provision of “body basic” sanitary items via its Worthing distribution center which is located in Chapel Road and run by volunteers. It has so far helped several thousand people in the local area.
Aspire Residential is proud to announce its sponsorship of Worthing Football Club. The club has a long history and association with the Worthing area having been established in 1886.
At Aspire Residential, our goal is to assist landlords achieve the maximum return on their investments, minimise any “hassle” and, very importantly, help manage the legal, compliance and health and safety risks associated with letting property in the Private Rented Sector. One of the key components of risk management is having a robust plan for what tenants should do in the event of an emergency that occurs “out of hours” such as in the middle of the night or on a weekend. It is essential that there are “crisis management” procedures in place to deal with matters such as fire risk, electrical safety, water leaks and gas safety concerns.
