Responsibilities of a Landlord

Under the Housing Act 2006 Landlords have more responsibility towards tenants than ever before. The main legal requirements for landlords to consider when letting a property are:

  • Tenant Deposit Scheme
  • Gas Safety Inspections
  • Home Energy Performance Reports 
  • Electrical Certification of Work
  • Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 as amended in 1993
  • Health and Safety Rating System

These can be very complex issues and independent reports can prove invaluable should a problem arise.
