Voids Overspill Contract, West Lancashire Borough Council

Our first void properties for West Lancs Borough Council have now been handed over ready for the new residents to move in.

This property involved major works including a new modern kitchen fitted with appliances, an upgraded wetroom, as well as various repairs to meet the Council’s re-let standard. We manage the full void refurbishment, including clearance, electrical tests and certificates and a final valet clean.

We are proud to be working for the Council directly after several years of working in their properties as a subcontractor. As part of this contract we provide flexible back-up support when the two main void contractors have a full workload, helping to reduce void turnaround times and associated rent-loss for the Council.

All WLBC voids need to be completed within their target timescales of 5, 7, 10 or 15 working days depending on the scope of works involved. UPS is locally based and deliver the work through our in-house, multi-skilled void teams, which means we can respond quickly and ensure voids are completed in the shortest possible timescale.
