There are important obligations placed upon Landlords to ensure that all gas supplied appliances in a rented property have a certificate of safety. This means central heating boilers, water heaters, cookers, fires etc. All such appliances must be properly maintained and serviced and are subject to an annual inspection and safety checks by an engineer who is registered with Gas Safe, as of April 2009. The Gas Safety Certificate has to be renewed annually. Non compliance with the Gas Safety Regulations could result in a heavy fine and/or imprisonment.
This is mandatory for us to be able to keep your property under our management and/or on our books.
The landlord is responsible to ensure that all electrical appliances supplied in the accommodation must be safe for use and must be fitted with a manufacturer's plug. As per new requirements of January 2005. We will arrange for the necessary electrical inspections to be carried out on your behalf if requested.
The law requires that all new houses built after June 1992 must have electronically linked, mains operated smoke detectors installed on each floor. Older properties are exempt from this requirement. Capital homes recommend that smoke detectors be installed on each floor in all rental properties.
Furnishings and fire safety regulations 1993 require that all upholstered furniture and furnishings in rented properties pass the the Cigarette & Match Tests BS 5852 If any property is found not to comply the landlord faces fines and/or imprisonment. A Landlord placing a property on the rental market must comply with these regulations. Furniture not in compliance must be removed before the tenancy commences.
