Having a fully functioning and serviceable heating system is often taken for granted but in the case of a pub or other commercial premises is absolutely essential to the smooth running the business, especially in the colder winter months.
Under the terms of your lease agreement you are responsible for the repair, maintenance and replacement of the heating system to your pub including the boiler and its associated controls. Costs for these items can sometimes run into several thousands of pounds and can present themselves at the most inconvenient of times. To assist you with meeting this obligation ei publican partnerships has developed its own Heating and Boiler Maintenance Scheme aimed at relieving you from much of this burden and giving you real peace of mind should a breakdown occur. This document outlines the key provisions of the scheme from which you will benefit.
When taking out a new lease you will be offered the opportunity of joining the scheme. Prior to acceptance an engineer will attend to carry out a thorough check on the equipment. A comprehensive report will be produced confirming the condition of the equipment and whether it can be accepted without the need for further works; in the event further work is essential, a quotation will be provided detailing the costs associated with this. The obligation would be down to you to rectify these issues prior to acceptance onto the scheme.
