As a landlord it is your sole responsibility to ensure that you meet all legal requirements. You can’t blame lack of awareness or your letting agent. It is down to you - if you don’t meet these requirements you could face prosecution.
It’s a scary thought; so knowledge is the key. Even if you have a letting agent managing your property, make sure that you are familiar with your legal responsibilities and you’ll be covered.
We have produced a legal checklist for you to go through to make sure you're covered. Please note that HMO properties have their own legal requirements.
You can request a copy of the legal checklist by entering your details in the sign up box on the left.
