Landlords

Complying with safety regulations

Gas & Electrical Safety

All landlords have a duty of care to ensure their tenants are safe. The law requires that all appliances are safe and strongly recommends that everything should be independently tested. We recommend only fully qualified contractors to carry out electrical and gas safety checks. Battery operated smoke alarms must be installed. (once installed, responsibility for replacing the battery passes to the tenant.)

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

Since 2008 all private residential property available for let must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). An EPC is a legal requirement for new lets. All tenants must be provided with a copy of the EPC at the start of the tenancy. For more information visit the Government’s website
