Other important considerations for landlords before letting.
Written consent must be obtained from your mortgage provider and the freeholder if property is leasehold.
Your insurance company must be notified that the property is to be rented out, as they may impose restrictions on the tenancy, which the agent will need to be aware. Appropriate insurance needs to be obtained for a tenanted property.
There are specialist insurance companies who can provide this and we would be happy to advise you.
The Inland Revenue must also be informed within 6 months of letting your property, flat or apartment in the UK and failure to do so will incur penalties, interest and other consequences. The Inland Revenue is apt to deal harshly with Landlords who do not declare rental income and it is always best to seek advice on tax planning and Capital Gains Tax from a fully qualified accountant.
Mail should be redirected with the Post Office.
Further copies of keys will need to be provided, depending on the number of tenants, if you have management agents acting for you.
Utilities such as gas, electricity, water and Council Tax will need to be transferred to the new tenant.
A professional inventory must be drawn up. This is an important legal document which forms an integral part of the tenancy agreement and, as such, it is a false economy to prepare your own in most cases.
A professional inventory is required whether the property to let is furnished or unfurnished and accurate descriptions of the condition of wall and floor coverings, kitchen and bathroom fittings to name but a few, are essential. Amounts cannot be withheld from the tenant’s deposit unless the loss or damage is proved to have been caused by the tenant.
In the event that any dispute concerning loss or damage to your property is not amicably resolved then the matter will be referred to the courts and arbitration.
The landlord is responsible for the EPC.
Regional Homes will be happy to arrange for the EPC to be carried out.
