In recent years there has been a shift in the domestic property dynamics and we are seeing more and more homeowners renting their properties along with a proliferation of smaller landlords letting their own properties. This is all well and good however it creates challenges when it comes to understanding and complying with existing legislation and of course keeping ahead of new and updated legislation, an example of this would be, it is now incumbent on the landlord to vet tenants for the Immigration authorities to ensure tenants are legally resident in the country. Fines for noncompliance are punitive.
This would be in addition to the recently updated Rented House Regulations for landlords which must be adhered to in terms of insurance and health and safety a sample of which are provided below –
The property must be maintained in a ‘proper state of structural repair’ meaning internally & externally sound – roof, windows, floors, ceilings, walls, stairs, doors, skirting, fascia, tiles, gutters, down pipes, fittings, furnishings, gardens and common areas all in good condition, without dampness and not defective As you can appreciate this is quite a list of responsibilities which need maintaining and managing in order to ensure a happy and satisfied tenant, and be fully compliant.
