Compliance for landlords

Being a landlord can be lucrative and rewarding but it is highly challenging. One of the most common complaints cited by landlords is the amount of regulatory issues they must deal with and the work they have to do in order to comply with what is expected of them.

These regulations are serious and with local authorities being provided with additional powers to penalise and punish non-compliant landlords, it is essential that landlords run their business in a suitable manner.

The following is a comprehensive yet not exhaustive list of requirements that landlords must comply with when letting property:

  • Gas Safety
  • Fire Safety Order
  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
  • Deposits
  • Payment of administration fees
  • Licensing matters
  • Electrical inspections
  • GDPR
  • Carbon monoxide alarms
  • Legionella Assessment
  • Right To Rent
  • Prescribed information to tenants

If you are new to being a landlord, you may be surprised at how many administrative and regulatory matters a landlord must comply with. It is also essential to be aware that these regulations are evolving all the time. New regulations regarding HMO properties come into effect from October 2018 and the Tenant Fees Ban will be in place in 2019.
