A few of the regulatory requirements and possible fines for noncompliance are…

  • Tenancy Deposit – noncompliance of legislation means that you can be fined a hefty 3 times the deposit amount.
  • Furniture & Regulations – noncompliance of legislation means could mean a £5,000 fine and/or six months imprisonment.
  • Right to Rent checks & Immigration checks – You can be fined up to £3,000 for renting your property to someone who isn’t allowed to rent property in England.
  • Landlord’s Right of Entry – It is in fact illegal for a landlord or agent to enter the property without permission from the tenant. Ultimately, a landlord has no right of entry unless the tenant grants them access or the landlord is given permission by the courts.
  • How to Rent guide – It is part of the new legislation, which means you won’t be able to repossess your property without providing your tenant with the booklet. It should not be taken lightly.
  • Rent Increase – If you try and increase rent unfairly the tenant can refuse and defer it to the Rent Assessment Panel
  • General Upkeep & Repairs – The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 sets out the rights and responsibilities of both landlord and tenant. If not dealt with in a certain way and in a certain time frame you may relinquish your right to be able to serve your tenants notice.
  • Legionella Assessment – Do you know what legionella is… don’t worry we do and we’ll deal with it via our fully managed rental service.
  • Prescribed Information – noncompliance of legislation means you forfeit your right to be able to serve a notice, i.e you will not be able to get your tenants out when you want.
  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Regulations – Responsibility for the enforcement of the legislation lies with the relevant local housing authority, and breaches of the guidance can be punished by a fine of up to £5000.
  • Electrical Saftey – noncompliance of legislation constitute a criminal offence under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 that carries a maximum penalty on summary conviction of a £5000 fine and/or six months imprisonment.
