Landlord Compliance Checklist

As a landlord, staying compliant with the ever-evolving landscape of regulations is paramount. Did you know that by the end of 2023, there were a staggering 156 pieces of relevant legislation in place, marking a significant 32% increase since 2010? Keeping pace with these changes is crucial to avoid substantial fines and penalties.

Quick Compliance Checklist:

Right to Rent Checks: Verify tenants' legal right to rent in the UK as per Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014.

Annual Gas Safety Inspection: Ensure all gas appliances are maintained and inspected annually by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.

Electrical Safety: Conduct electrical inspections every 5 years by a qualified engineer as per July 2020 regulations.

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Install alarms on every floor and near solid fuel sources; ensure they are operational on the first day of the tenancy and every subsequent visit to the property.

Rental Property Safety: Address any safety hazards and comply with the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRH) to maintain safe conditions.

Tenants' Deposit Protection: Secure tenants' deposits in government-approved schemes.

Landlord License: Adhere to selective licensing requirements enforced by local councils.
