Getting your property ready
Before you can rent out your home, it’s your responsibility to ensure that the property is safe and fit for human habitation. If a property is unsafe or unfit you could be committing a civil or criminal offence, and may be subject to enforcement action by your local authority. To help you understand the requirements under the Housing Act 2004, it’s important that you read this guidance, which is aimed at non-specialists and especially private landlords. This will help you identify the types of work that may need to be carried out to ensure your property is safe and fit for habitation.
To ensure that your property is safe and fit, your responsibilities as a landlord include taking the following steps:
- have a gas safety check carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer
- ensure any furniture provided meets the required safety standards
- ensure any electrical equipment provided meets the required safety standards
- ensure a smoke alarm is installed on each floor of your home and that carbon monoxide detectors are present in any room with a coal fire or wood-burning stove
- ensure you have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for your property. Privately rented properties must have a minimum EPC rating of E for new lets and renewal tenancies (unless exempt). Failure to comply with this could result in a fine of £5,000 from the local authority. See further detailed guidance on EPCs.
