Welcome to the Landlord Information and news website. We aim to deliver all the links and advice you could ask for regarding Landlord Information.
The Landlord Tenant act was created by the United Kingdom government for the protection of both occupants and land owners, and is compulsory for them both to follow. Some of the general requirements are stipulated by the government specifically for the landlord to follow. First of all they have to make the property realistically habitable before the prospective tenants take occupancy of the property.
A landlord also needs to provide a written notice to residents old and new in which they detail all the relevant information. Such documentary notice needs to includes all the financial details such as those surrounding the utility bills and payment of bills incurred as a result of damages, the fixed date for the paying of the rent, and any other vital information.
These are just some of the requirements for landlords to follow. There are also some stipulated requirements for the tenants to fulfill. These laws include the timely payment of rent and utility bills to the landlord, the proper disposal of waste, and the general care and use of the property that has been authorized for you by the landlord.
One of the major issues that has to be remembered is that the tenant cannot allow anyone else to live there without the landlord’s permission. Landlords and tenants must also refrain from disturb each other unnecessarily. Please get in touch with us if you want to know more about Landlord Information.
Tenancy Deposit Regulation
For the latest update (20th March) please click here.
Did you know?
From 6 April 2007, tenants' deposits will be regulated and from that date all landlords taking tenancy deposits will have to join a Tenancy Deposit Scheme.
This will apply to all Assured Shorthold Tenancies set up after 6th April 2007. Deposits that have been taken for tenancies set up before 6th April will not need to be registered on any scheme unless a new tenancy agreement is issued after that date.
There will be two types of scheme - one where the landlord can continue to hold the deposit and one where the deposit will have to be transferred to a third party. The NFRL is negotiating a scheme where the landlord can take and hold the deposit.
