Is your property legal?

Potential landlords should be aware of certain legal aspects. This ensures the property is fully compliant with current legislation.

Therefore, the main areas are as follows:


Energy Performance Certificates

All properties marketed for rental must have a current. In addition, there must be a relevant Energy Performance Certificate

 

EPC's from Knights Porter - Southampton Estate Agents

 


Gas Safety Certificates

All properties that have gas heating or appliances should have a current Gas Safety Certificate

 

Furnishings

All furnishings left in a property for the tenants use should meet the current fire safety regulations. In addition, labels to show they meet fire regulations are vital.


Tenancy Deposit Registration

It is a legal requirement for landlords to register any deposit collected. Hence tenants know their deposit is safe. For more information on Tenancy Deposit Registration, please click here.

 

Electrial Safety

Only required for a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO). Much as this is the case, for best practice an electrical safety test is conducted every 5 years


Insurance

Most mortgage companies will insist on at least buildings insurance in place. While this makes sense, it’s easy to overlook. For more information – click here.

 

Consent to Let

Some mortgage companies may also require landlords to obtain a consent to let from them if they do not have a Buy to Let mortgage on the property.
