It’s important for landlords to ensure the property is safe and fit for living. And if any job needs to be done in the property, finding reliable, good local tradespeople is one of the biggest struggles for DIY landlords. Handymen, gas contractors (with the qualifications to provide gas safety certificates) and electricians can sometimes fall short of expectations. That’s why we have a solution that will help you to get the right person for the job. We are excited to be partnering with Local Heroes, the online booking platform that matches skilled and vetted local tradespeople to customers who need jobs doing in their home, quickly and easily. The work comes with a 12-month guarantee backed by British Gas, so you can be sure that it's of top quality.
Local Heroes was set up by British Gas in 2016 when they realised it was possible to have an easier way to find someone reliable and trustworthy to do skilled jobs. Today, they have a network of over 7,000 local companies across the UK, covering a vast range of jobs in your home from plumbing to plastering and decorating to electrics.
Their team thoroughly vet all of the tradespeople on the Local Heroes platform to make sure they are qualified for the job. When the job's done, there's no need to worry about cash, simply pay online quickly and easily.
This amounts to one great service: an easy-to-use booking platform which puts the customer and tradesperson in control; lets you book at times which suit you, and gives you the reassurance that the work is guaranteed for 12 months.
