Navigating Complex Rental Legislation

By the start of 2023, almost 200 pieces of complex legislation affected landlords and their rental properties. Attempting to manage your property alone or working with sub-standard letting agents can be a minefield.

Failing to comply can result in hefty fines, jail sentences, financial pressure and emotional stress.

Here are some of your key responsibilities as a landlord:

  • Energy Performance Certificates
  • Right to Rent
  • Deposit Handling Requirements
  • Gas Safety Checks
  • Fire Safety Measures
  • Electrical Installation Condition Report
  • The Deregulation Act
  • The Tenant Fee Ban
  • Furniture and Furnishings Fire Regulations
  • Legionnaires’ Disease
  • Landlord Licences
  • Eviction Law
  • Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector
