Landlords

Our Landlord Guide

Register as a Landlord
It is a legal requirement to register as a Landlord with the local authority before you can advertise and let the property. 

If you’re planning to rent your property out to 3 or more unrelated people, you will also need a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Licence

Obtain Consent
You must obtain consent to let the property from any joint owners of the property and if the property is mortgaged, the lender. Some mortgages have terms and conditions therefore if you let your property without consulting them you might break your contract.

Insurance 
When you rent out your property, it may have an impact on your existing Buildings & Contents insurance.
You should discuss your plans to rent out your property with your insurer as they will give you advice on the most suitable cover.

Landlord Safety Certificates 
There are certain safety regulations that must be met prior to and during the letting of your property. If required, we can arrange the following safety certificates on your behalf using our trusted local contractors;

  • Gas Safety Certificate
  • Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) 
  • Portable Appliance Test Certificate (PAT)
  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
  • Legionnaires Risk Assessment
