Compliance and legislative issues
Expert Landlord Compliance advice is key to providing our clients with peace of mind.
With the growing legislative changes and new regulations that have come into effect, the lettings process can be complex and demanding. A Landlords number one priority should be to ensure that any property offered to let is safe for Tenants to occupy, is fully compliant and meets all Landlord obligations. Landlords are not only responsible for the property but also the safety of the Tenant and their family or guests.
Knowing an agent is a regulated member of ARLA and The Ombudsman Service gives a Landlord the confidence that a strict code of conduct is adhered to and all standards for Lettings are being met.
Understanding Landlords legal responsibilities can be overwhelming. Our Lettings teams are fully qualified with appropriate industry standard awards and come with a wealth of experience, to guide and advice in what can be a difficult and time consuming exercise. The Lettings teams work closely with a Landlord to install trust and confidence with a constantly evolving market overcoming and advising on new legislative challenges and requirements.
There are many statutory requirements that must be complied with; these laws protect the Landlord and the Tenant. Strutt & Parker strongly believe in keeping Landlords informed of their obligations, including new and changing requirements which gives a Landlord assurance their property is being let in accordance with all of the latest legislation.
