Once references have been received we will contact you to confirm the result and moving in date.
We use an approved Tenancy Agreement which has been carefully designed to protect the landlord’s rights to possession, help control the tenant’s activities and comply with standard mortgage lender requirements. Tenancy agreements are usually for an initial term of 6 or 12 months, however shorter or longer term tenancies can be negotiated. The Housing Act 1988 specifies several different types of tenancy, however your tenancy is likely to be an Assured Short hold Tenancy or Contractual Tenancy.
The landlord’s obligations are clearly determined in Section 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. The landlord is responsible for maintaining the structure and exterior of the property, heating and plumbing installations and dealing with routine repairs. If the property is leasehold, the landlord is responsible for paying the service charge and ground rent.
The tenant has the responsibility of taking care of the rented property and using it in a responsible way, paying the rent and keeping to the terms of the tenancy agreement.
If you are a landlord renting out your property or thinking of renting out your property, whether you are a seasoned landlord or a starter landlord, this is a must read. Becoming a landlord is not as simple as buying a property and finding a tenant. There are law-backed responsibilities for landlords. Failure in any one of those could land a landlord in hefty fine. Don’t fall foul of the law.
Regulation changes every now and then. And as a landlord, it is your responsibility to be up to date with the law. At Anglowide Estates, we help keep our landlords abreast of new regulations.

Whatever you choose, here are some tips to help keep you on the right side of the law:
You have a duty to tenants to ensure the properties you rent to them are actually safe to live in. This means you need to stay aware of any issues that arise with the electrics, gas or any other potential hazards that could harm those living in the property.
Regulatory requirements include providing safety devices, such as
Did you know that from April 2018, the EPC of your property must be minimum of Band E before you could rent your property out?
Your property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) lets tenants and authorities know how energy efficient the property is. The ratings provided range from A to G and the EPC will define what measures have been installed in the property, such as insulation, new boilers or double-glazed windows, to make it as energy efficient as possible, thus reducing the cost of bills for tenants. It is in your best interest to achieve a high rating for your EPC, as this makes the property more attractive to prospective tenants. You can acquire an EPC from an accredited assessor. Contact our office to arrange one.
You must check that a tenant can legally rent your property. The "right to rent" scheme, which requires landlords to check the immigration status of tenants, was introduced in England in 2016. Before you issue a new tenancy, you must check all tenants aged 18 and over, even if
While you have the right to enter a tenant’s property to inspect things, you also need to understand that there are some key rules you must follow before turning up. First, you must provide your tenants with twenty-four hours’ notice before you arrive at the property. In many cases, the tenancy agreements that you create will also stipulate that visits must be made at reasonable times, which means no turning up in the early hours of the morning. Failure to comply with this means you are breaching standard terms of tenancy, and possibly the law.
If you have taken a security deposit from your tenant it is your duty to protect this money. The rules state that all deposits must be placed in a Tenancy Deposit Protection (TDP) scheme and there are no exceptions.
There are three such schemes in England:
Each of these protects deposits and ensures that tenants receive them back upon leaving the property, assuming they have held up their ends of the tenancy agreement. You must place a deposit into one of these schemes within thirty days of receiving it and the agreed sum must be returned to tenants within ten days of said sum being agreed.
