Landlord's legal obligations
Energy Performance Certificates
An E.P.C. is required by law when marketing a property either for rent or for sale. You can check if your rental property has one by checking on-line here www.epcregister.com. Under new legislation you cannot let a property with an EPC rating of F or lower.
If your rental property currently doesn't have an EPC and you instruct us to Let or Manage your property we can arrange one for you, prices start from just £65.00
Gas Safe Certificates
If your rental property has gas appliances, such as a boiler, hob or gas fire you are legally obliged to have these checked on an annual basis by a qualified Gas Safe Engineer. The engineer will provide you or your agent and tenant with a certificate if the appliances pass. For rental properties that we market or manage we can arrange for a Gas Safety check to be undertaken, prices start from just £65.00.
Electrical Safety Checks
It is recommended that every 10 years your electrical system is checked, this includes the main consumer unit, sockets and lighting. If you are providing a fully furnished property with electrical appliances then these should be PAT tested (Portable Appliance Testing), not doing so could leave you vulnerable should there be a problem with the circuitry or an appliance. Our electrical safety checks start from £95.00
Safety Certificates and checks are at the landlord's additional expense.
If we are required to accompany / supervise the contractor while undertaking these works, we charge a fee of £15.00 per occasion.
