Landlord Legal Requirements

Board7Jenson

Before Kane Empires can rent your property there must be certain legal requirements in place first.

We can take the worry off of your hands and organize all of these requirements on your behalf, but better still unlike most other Letting Agents Kane Empires will carry out all of this at COST PRICE!

All of our qualified tradespeople give very competitive pricing and there wont be any administration fees added on top.

Alternatively you are more than welcome to source your own tradespeople, we are very flexible however these will need to be in place prior to your property going on the rental market.

 

Legal Requirements

As a Landlord you must make sure that all Gas equipment supplied at the property is safely installed and maintained by a gas safe registered engineer. A Gas Safety check must be carried out on all appliances or flues annually.

All properties on the Letting market must now have a valid energy performance certificate in place. This involves an energy assessment being carried out on the property which works out energy usage and energy costs. It also shows recommendations on how to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs. The property will then be given a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).

As a Landlord you must ensure that the electrical systems (lights, sockets etc) are safe and all of the appliances that are supplied by this are safe. Periodic inspections and all repairs must be carried out by a qualified professional.

For peace of mind and reassurance Kane Empires strongly recommends having an Electrical Safety Check carried out. This is a thorough inspection of all electrics at the property to make sure they comply with current legislation and identify any potential hazards. You will be issued with a certificate once complete which is valid for 5 years.

As a Landlord you must make sure you follow fire safety regulations. Any furniture or furnishings provided for the tenant must comply with current legislation and be fire safe. Fire alarms must be provided adequate for the size of the property.

 

 

As a Landlord and as an Agent we have a duty of care to the surroundings we supply for our Tenants. This is why Kane Empires insists on all of the above being in place prior to any rental taking place. It is far better to be safe than sorry.

 

Failure to comply with any of the above could result in prosecution later down the line.

 

* Please note that prices indicated may be subject to change based on distance of the property, the size of the property or the trades person increasing pricing. Kane Empires has no control over this.
