Our Brockley branch are proud sponsors of Crofton Park Railway Garden


Published: 03/06/2019   Last Updated: 03/06/2019 16:05:23   Tags: Sponsorship, Brockley, Crofton Park, South London, Garden, Plants, Railway, Station,

We had so much fun this weekend attending the Crofton Park Railway Garden opening which we were the proud sponsors of.

The event kicked off in full sunshine with the formal opening by the garden’s designer Mark Lane and Councillor Sophie McGeever, followed by a hedge planning ceremony, cakes, plant sales and even a raffle draw!

There was a fantastic turn out and lot of the community in Crofton came along to see just how much the space had changed.

Thank you to all who attended and we look forward to visiting this beautiful new space again!

If you want to know more about this, you can visit the garden’s official website where you can see all future events and planned volunteer days!

Managing your property efficiently

Whilst rental prices remain at an all time high in our area and the lettings market is still very buoyant, Landlords are urged to remember the duty of care to their tenants’ health and safety.

Landlords should make regular property visits to inspect for essential repairs and reduce the risk of their tenants being exposed to potentially life threatening hazards.

A recent case saw a landlord in Tottenham, North London, jailed for four months and ordered to pay approximately £2,000 in damages for illegally installing a boiler at his rented property and then repeatedly attempting to fix it himself when the tenants reported a strong smell of gas.

The Defence Premises Act requires Landlords to pay damages to a tenant if they become injured or dies, as a result of a defect which the landlord is responsible for repairing. This extends to paying compensation if tenant’s belongings are destroyed as a result also.

Gary Cole, Branch Manager at Peter James said “We work with Landlords from the initial marketing stage to check that their property meets all the safety requirements.  Our management team then make regular visits to the property and deal with problems quickly and efficiently.”

The most common dangers found in rental properties are un-serviced boilers, bare wiring, damp, mould, broken windows, leaning brick walls and overgrown gardens with concealed barbed wires.

Jack Dixon, Peter James’ Property Manager for the New Cross area has a plan for all of his properties. “I speak to my tenants regularly and encourage them to report any hazards as soon as possible. We also visit each managed property a minimum of three times a year and produce a mid-term inspection report each time, so I can see if there is anything that would be dangerous from this as well as the general condition of the property.

“A 24 hour response is in place for heating, water systems and minor electrical problems and a 72 hour response for kitchen appliances and other items that affect the daily life of a tenant. Our ethos at Peter James is that if we respond quickly to any faults which keeps the tenant happy and paying rent in time which results in a happy Landlord.”

Peter James manages over 500 properties in the Lee, Blackheath and New Cross area. If you have a property in the area which you would like us to manage for you, please contact 020 8463 1550.
