Making sure you are fully informed about and up to date with all your legal safety obligations as a landlord is a priority for us. This will give you peace of mind that there won’t be any liabilities that pop up without you being kept well ahead of the game.
The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 requires you as a landlord to maintain the structure of the building, the sanitation and the supply of services. In addition, you would be expected within the terms of the tenancy agreement to replace or repair any items damaged through fair wear and tear. We have set procedures and qualified specialists to support you in all aspects of property management.
Ensuring our properties are fully compliant not only keeps our tenants safe but protects our Landlords too. There are many regulations that landlords need to adhere to by law, and our team are trained and monitored to ensure the relevant compliance and safety checks are carried out on your property, before commencing with a let. Our qualified contractors can provide relevant certificates evidencing your property meets the below regulation requirements:
The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1994
The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994
The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007
The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 (as amended)
