It is imperative to keep tenants safe in their homes. An article in Landlord Today, written by a health & safety consultant, has highlighted the crucial issues for landlords. Following the Grenfell disaster, fire safety is the leading priority followed by full compliance with electrical and gas regulations.Landlords have always been expected to maintain rented homes to a reasonable standard, with the current health and the safety rules giving clear guidance as to what is required. Health and safety legislation, however, is forever changing. Keeping up with these changes is a major responsibility, and can be challenging to do. This is made even more difficult should you have a portfolio of different types of property, requiring compliance in a multitude of ways.
As an example, the rules that apply to HMOs will not be the same as those for a block of flats or for a buy-to-let home. Effective compliance means that your properties, their fixtures, fittings and appliances have to meet the regulations and that all works have been carried out by registered or qualified professionals. It is also an imperative that landlords retain evidence to prove they have done what they were supposed to do.
All these factors are complex and time-consuming. Beacuse of this, Ringley has developed a solution with landlords in mind. Our PlanetRent app is designed to make it simple to manage your health & safety compliance and to know what safety checks or certificates are missing or expiring soon.
It is that simple.
We will save you even more time and money. Every time you upload a document we will send it to the tenant, and, if you are an agent we will send a copy to your landlord too!
The whole process is free, so why not take a look at the PlanetRent website to find out more and download the app today?
