It’s important to be a responsible landlord. We take safety regulations and legislation very seriously – it helps to protect both our tenants and our landlords.
Here we outline the key safety regulations and landlord responsibilities when letting out a property.
Letting a property creates a legal relationship between the landlord and the tenant. No matter how informal you may intend the arrangement to be, it is bound by specific housing legislation. For example, the legislation defines the certain basic rights that all private tenants have, whether living in controlled or uncontrolled properties.
Before letting, you should be clear about the property you have let, who you want to let it to and how you want it to be let. You need to adhere to the myriad of regulations that you as a Landlord are responsible for.
To test your knowledge of the rules and regulations we at the Experts in Property have devised a quick 20 questions.
