Gas safety checks are there for the protection of both tenants and landlords. They confirm that all gas appliances in the property were tested safe on a particular day every year. There is a legal requirement to carry them out on an annual basis. This gives peace of mind to tenants that the appliances are safe to use.
Carbon Monoxide kills. Stay safe, ensure you have a certificate.

As a landlord myself, I decided that it would be a good idea to set up a letting agency.
Why did I want to do this? I personally bought property as an investment, as many others have over the last few years. That property is an investment for the future. My philosophy is if you have well referenced tenants and provide them with a nice home, that is regularly maintained. Then they will look after your investment.
My background as an administration manager stood me in good stead to set up procedures and processes to ensure that all our landlords and tenants are happy. Properties are looked after by utilising good referencing procedures, choosing good tenants and carrying out regular property visits.
I intend to use this blog to highlight some of the good and not so good bits about the letting industry.
Happy reading and welcome 🙂
