GLA to provide additional funding for London boroughs' property inspection programmes

The Mayor has recently approved funding from the Greater London Authority to support and enhance the property inspection functions of all London boroughs. 

This funding (up to £50,000 per billing authority in 2017/18 and £75,000 in 2018/19 and 2019/20) also applies where inspections are outsourced to an external provider.

Phoenix, through our specialist non-enforcement arm PS&P, have been a leading provider of property inspection services to Local Authorities throughout London and across the UK for over 10 years. 

We can offer a flexible and effective solution that may provide benefits over recruiting internal staff resources, such as:

  • Reduced Costs - eliminate the costs associated with the recruitment, training and ongoing management of permanent staff
  • Expertise and Experience - nationwide references from satisfied customers in London and across England, with over 98,000 inspections completed this year 
  • Fast Implementation - we can develop an inspection programme and have feet on the ground within days, to maximise the allocation of 2017/18 funding
  • Total Flexibility - to cover backlogs, special projects or variations in workload
  • Fast Reporting - iPad based solution with overnight transfer of inspection data
  • Volume and Efficiency - with extended inspection hours (8am to 8pm) and intelligent route planning, we can cover more properties, more efficiently
  • Results Focussed - inspectors rewarded for success
  • Dedicated Account Manager - ensuring a close working relationship

To discuss how we can provide a cost effective and professional inspection solution for your borough, contact Andy Cummins, Group Business Development and Client Director, at andy.cummins@phoenixcommercial.co.uk or call 07841 995 732.
