Landlord Information
  • paragraph

    Ensure your property let runs smoothly while we do all the hard work behind the scenes. To help you benefit from our years of experience in this field we have put together some helpful files on our website www.acorns.co.uk/landlords/index.html that every landlord and tenant should know.

    Electrical Safety Regulations

    This section is designed to give a summary of regulations which currently exist relating to electrical appliances and their impact on both private and commercial landlords.

    The electrical safety regulations require that any electrical appliances supplied must be safe. Where their safe use requires, appropriate instruction booklets must also be provided.

    Unlike the gas safety regulations, there is no statutory annual testing interval. Yet, in order to meet the requirements, it is still important that the appropriate checks and safeguards are carried out.

    The regulations require:

    General Safety. All electrical equipment supplied must be safe. This will require that the electrical appliances, including their leads, are checked by a competent and suitably qualified engineer. Unsafe items should be removed


    Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)Do I need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

    From 1 October 2008 it will be a legal requirement for all landlords to have a valid EPC for their property before it can be placed on the market to be let.

    What is an EPC?

    An EPC assesses the energy performance of a property, from "A" representing the most energy efficient property to "G" representing the least energy efficient property. It must be carried out by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor and will also show a building's environmental impact by indicating its carbon dioxide emissions.

    Insurance

    When letting your property you should consider the types of insurance that you would have in place if you were living in it yourself.

    What am I as a landord responsible for?

    As a landlord you would be responsible mainly for the buildings insurance and for insuring your own contents. You are not responsible for the insurance of your tenant's property.

    This only a snippet of our knowledge you'll find far more information like this on our website so please feel free to visit www.acorns.co.uk
