EMPO has received the updated October edition of the ‘How to Rent Guide.’ As a landlord you have a legal duty to issue this guide to tenants at the commencement of a new fixed term tenancy agreement.
The purpose of the guide is to assist tenants and landlords in the private rented sector to help them understand their rights and responsibilities. It provides a checklist and more detailed information on each stage of the process, including:
Provided you have written confirmation from your tenant you can email a link to the guide. Remember you must also provide a copy of the gas certificate and EPC to the tenant at the commencement of the tenancy and ensure the tenants deposit is registered and protected within 30 days of the commencement of the tenancy.
