>buy-to-let and support for Landlords

Landlords are being urged to seek guidance to ensure that they are clear on the ‘bombardment’ of regulatory changes that could affect their buy-to-let investments.

With a range of new rules ranging from The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Bill to The Tenant Fees Bill, landlords need to be up to speed with the changes in the PRS, which is becoming more regulated, especially in light of the fact that a new housing complaints service is set to be introduced.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire announced plans last month for a new Housing Complaints Resolution Service, which will legally require private landlords to become members of a redress scheme, as part of wider efforts to better protect private renters.

Keeping up with the latest legislation is vital.  However for many landlords, it is difficult to keep up-to-date with new regulations that continue to hit the Private Rented Sector year on year.
We understand this as for many landlords, it is not their full-time job.
Yet, it’s key to do so and not just for peace of mind - the implications of non compliance are huge.  And good reason alone to have your rental property professionally managed by a vigilant and experienced agent.  Many landlords think property management is just about maintenance however it’s more and more about tenancy management and making sure you’re compliant with the many and ongoing complex legal changes.
