Building owners must ensure that premises are well maintained and kept in a serviceable condition. Services such as water, lighting, heating and air conditioning must be maintained to ensure that the building is safe and comfortable to use.

Ineffective maintenance costs money. It is usually more expensive to make urgent repairs than to take early preventive action and faults such as water leaks and cracked windows can lead to expensive problems such as damp and high heating or water costs.
