    Advice Relating to Legislation Affecting Landlords and their Properties
    Gas Appliances
    Supply (further information - Trading Standards Services) - All new and second hand gas appliances as part of a let must be safe and have clear instructions and warnings appropriate to their safe useInstallation and Use (further information - Private Sector Housing and Health & Safety Executive) - Landlords must ensure all gas appliances and flues (this includes bottled and LPG cabinet heaters) are maintained and checked for safety at least every 12 months. You must also keep a record of maintenance and safety checks and make this information available to Tenants, on requestAdvisory - Any LPG heater presents a health and safety risk due to it being a portable source of heat. In addition it creates severe condensation and this may contribute to the dwelling being unfit for human habitation. Landlords are strongly advised not to provide LPG heaters to their tenants. 
    Mains Electrical Installations 
    Although the law does not stipulate that the mains electrical installation needs to be inspected. We advise all Landlords to obtain an Electrical Safety Inspection on the mains electrical installation, to be done prior to the start of tenancy and within the following 5 years or on change of occupancy. 
    Mains Electrical Equipment 
    If electrical equipment is provided with the let accommodation then it must be left safe. This applies to such items as kettles, televisions, electrical cookers, washing machines etc.The law does not stipulate that you have to have each item of electrical equipment tested. However, it is strongly recommended that you should consider having items tested to protect your Tenant from danger and yourself from possible prosecution and/or civil litigation. Any tests should be carried out at reasonable intervals, bearing in mind the likely rate of usage of the appliance. Make sure any test identifies clearly the equipment tested and keep such test reports for your own reference and to produce to the enforcement personnel if required.Any plug on an electrical appliance must be a "standard plug" i.e of an approved type, with live and neutral pins sleeved and having the correct fuse rating for the appliance to which it is connected. Mains appliances must by law, be fitted with a plug. (Further information - trading standards service).

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        Just can't believe it!! We had our house valued and photographed yesterday and in less than 24 hours we have accepted an offer of the asking price...amazing. Paul and Pete were professional, courteous and respectful when visiting the house and gave us lots of time, advice and encouragement. Sue in the office is just fab. Everyone is very knowledgeable and happy to give lots of time to ensure that we are happy. We have every confidence that we will have all the support we need for this next leg of the house moving journey. Thank you so much ��
      • Seller Testimonial

        I can't thank Sutherland Reay more, great service they sold my house in a good time scale with lots of viewings for 100% of market price. I had 3 local agents out to value my house, Sutherland Reay priced it at what I thought was a fair price where other local agents tried to overvalue it to try get my business. All the people in the New Mills office are VERY polite and answer the phone in record speed, so as a seller this lets me know that my buyers can easily speak to them and won't be treated poorly.When I was a buyer I purchased from another agent and found the other agent rude. The buyers of my home said Sutherland Reay were great with them and very helpful. If you're buying or selling I'd used Sutherland Reay as a first port of call. I will 100% use them again in the future fantastic company.Nick
