Helpful Tips:-

As a Landlord there are a number of things you need to consider before becoming a landlord:

  • You will need to seek permission from your mortgage lender to let your property - if you do not have a buy-to-let mortgage.
  • If you are in a leasehold property, get permission from the head lessee to rent the property.
  • You will need to ensure an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) is in place for all new tenancy agreements. Should a property receive an EPC rating below band ‘E’ then legally it can’t be Let until the landlord has improved the efficiency of the building and obtained an EPC in excess of Band ‘E’.
  • Make sure your buildings and contents insurance is appropriate.
  • Get gas appliances checked in accordance with gas regulations i.e. obtain a gas safety certificate annually.
  • Check that furniture, if applicable, complies with Fire Safety Regulations.
  • Ensure there are smoke alarms on each floor of the property and a carbon monoxide alarm where necessary.

As a Landlord prior to Letting your Property you should engage the services of a quality letting agent who should:-

  • Have your assured short hold tenancy document reviewed and signed by all parties.
  • Check and advise on your prospective tenant's references
  • On managed properties ensure a check in inventory is completed before a tenant moves in.
  • With placement properties the landlord will have the option to have an inventory completed at a cost.
  • Redirect your mail.
  • Arrange for all meters to be read and the accounts to be transferred to new tenant.
  • Arrange for your council tax to be paid by the new tenant.

Please note the above list contains only some of your possible responsibilities as a tenant.
