A strata manager’s job isn’t easy. It involves juggling multiple tenants and owners while managing never-ending administrative and maintenance issues. Coordinating with the owners’ corporation and different tradies for repair and maintenance work also adds to the workload and responsibilities.
That’s why having a reliable strata electrician is essential to keep your facility running smoothly and keep tenants happy. Electrical faults in switchboards, metres and wiring can create chaos, affecting several units simultaneously. If these things occur, they require immediate attention and repair to minimise disruption and pacify frustrated residents.
Having a licensed and local electrician on call ensures that issues are resolved quickly with professionals who know what they’re doing. With the additional benefit of being familiar with the strata property’s electrical system and previous work done on it.
If you’re looking for a dependable and experienced real estate electrician, certain things should be kept in mind before hiring one.
Do Your Research
Strata electrical work requires specialised technical knowledge and a diverse skill set to handle different types of electrical systems and problems. Therefore, look for an electrician well versed in the various legal and physical aspects of a strata managed facility.
You need a strata electrician who is more than a general residential electrician. He should have excellent communication skills to handle tenants, other contractors and body corporates. With the experience and knowledge to repair and maintain large-scale plumbing systems quickly and efficiently.
Market-competitive prices with quality services are a must when it comes to a real estate electrician. Since strata electrical maintenance and repair work is never finished, you need someone who provides good service at affordable rates.
Look for an electrical contractor who provides upfront quotes and is consistent with both services and rates. It’s essential to have a trustworthy strata electrician who offers quality services and transparent pricing with written records and reports to keep track of the work done.
Emergency Electrical Services
Look for an electrical company that offers round-the-clock emergency services. It will make your job as a strata manager easier and give you the peace of mind that electrical assistance in emergencies is only a call away.
Electrical contractors who offer emergency services also have a quicker response time overall, which is a definite plus in shared properties.
Other factors to consider are insurance and licences. Since managers are answerable to both tenants and owner’s corporations, the electricians they refer to residents or call for shared work must be qualified. Shoddy or substandard electrical work puts your reputation on the line, making you accountable for hiring an inexperienced electrician. Insurance provides an added layer of protection and adds to the credibility of the contractors.
