Who needs an EPC in London?
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) were introduced in England and Wales back in 2007 as part of Home Information Packs (HIPs) for domestic properties with four or more bedrooms. This requirement has since extended and having a valid EPC is now a requirement if you are a selling, renting or building a property in the UK. Given the current status of the planet in terms of conserving resources this is no bad thing. Environmental issues aside, it is also a wise move for us financially. One of the biggest financial drains over the course of your tenancy or your home’s lifetime is energy bills. This is exacerbated by ever increasing energy costs. In this post, we explain why people need EPCs and what they are used for.
As soon as you have accepted the offer and agreed the terms of the tenancy, we will arrange the contracts for both parties. We will also arrange when to provide the keys to your tenants.
Guide to what landlords gain from property management agents
Congratulations, you’ve invested in a property.. You’re going to help pay off the deposit, or help to pay your own bills, by renting it out. Being a landlord will be easy right? Yes and no. Being a residential landlord is not a full-time job but it is a serious responsibility and if you do it without expertise and experience you could end up wishing you hadn’t gone at it alone. For example, through unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather, failing appliances or poor tenant conduct you could find yourself facing insurance claims, damage to your property or worse, injury to your tenant and legal action as a result.
