Landlord Compliance Guide

Bison Electrical Services

What do I need to do as a landlord? What are my legal obligations as a landlord? What legal things need doing when you’re a landlord? All these questions are commonly asked and thankfully, we have the answers!

There are over 2.8 million landlords in the UK , and if you’ve clicked this article, you may be one of them! A landlord is defined as a person who rents out land, a building, or accommodation. The rental sector grows more every year and unfortunately, so does the number of non-compliant landlords and properties.

What are the checks involved?

There are numerous checks and inspections required to be carried out both before a property can be rented, and whilst it is being rented. Checks and inspections may need to be completed monthly, annually, bi-annually or longer, but it is imperative they are done when they should be! You can read about all the checks involved using our handy guide below.

What happens if checks are not completed?

Depending on the category and severity, non-compliance or neglect of duties as a landlord can result in fines of up to £30,000, a pretty hefty fee for inspections that would cost thousands less!
