Planned & Preventative Maintenance Schedule – Folkestone

Work Required:

Our client had recently acquired the freehold of a neglected block of four conversion flats in Folkestone. The four conversion flats had not been well maintained. A planned and preventative maintenance (PPM) inspection and a survey were required to determine the necessary works and prepare a service charge budget.


Collier Stevens reviewed the lease and identified the extent of the freeholder’s repairing responsibility. We made a site inspection and prepared a maintenance schedule identifying necessary works. These were then costed and prioritised over a five-year period enabling the freeholder to assess the probable service charges. The schedule was subsequently used as the basis of a specification and tender process for contractors.

If you need a planned maintenance schedule in Folkestone, Hythe or Dover, contact us.
