Landlords of private rental properties and houses of multiple occupation are required to have an electrical installation condition report (EICR) carried out and available for the start of a new tenancy and for existing tenancies. This is to comply with the electricity safety standards in the private rented section (England) regulations 2020.
It is a legal requirement for a rental property to have a valid EICR before a new tenancy starts and are typically valid for 5 years from the date of the test. On completion of an EICR being carried out faults that have been identified are required to be rectified within 28 days from the date of the test and need to be undertaken by a Part P registered competent person.
Electrical equipment that is provided by the landlord that is to be used by a tenant at the property, is legally required to be safe to use to comply with the electrical equipment (safety) regulations 1994. It is always best practice to carry out a portable appliance test (PAT) on any electrical equipment provided, as you may be liable if the tenants are harmed from a faulty electrical appliance at the property.
Energy Performance Certificates are needed whenever a property is built, sold or rented. You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent. An EPC contains information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs and recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money.
An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years. To let a property your efficiency rating must be between A and E.
The furniture supplied within a rental property must comply with fire resistance requirements as defined within The Fire and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 (as amended).
The regulations apply to beds, headboards of beds and mattresses, sofa-beds, futons and other convertibles, nursery furniture, garden furniture suitable for use in the dwelling, scatter cushions and seat pads, pillows, loose and stretch covers for furniture. They do not apply to furniture made before 1950, bedclothes including duvets, loose covers for mattresses, pillow cases, curtains, carpets and sleeping bags.
The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 require a gas safety check to be carried out on every gas appliance/flue. This will ensure gas fittings and appliances are safe to use. A certificate will be supplied by a Gas Safe registered engineer stating a pass or a fail, and the appropriate action will be required should the check fail. The certificate is valid for 12 months and must be provided to the tenants prior to the commencement of the tenancy. Dimension Estates will not allow tenants to move in without a valid certificate.
he Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Regulations 2015 require that a working smoke alarm be fitted on every floor and a carbon monoxide alarm in rooms containing a solid fuel appliance.
If smoke alarms are present, it is imperative that they are maintained. A clause within the tenancy agreement will typically inform the tenants of their responsibility to keep it well maintained and the battery to be replaced when necessary.
Tax and the Non-Resident Landlord Scheme
You may be subject to income tax during the rental period and capital gains when you sell. If you are in any doubt, or you would prefer not to complete your own self-assessment tax return, then we advise that you consult an accountant.
If you reside overseas, we are required by HMRC to comply with the non-resident landlord scheme. Unless the landlord provides a NRL form to HMRC, we will be required to deduct the basic rate of income tax from the rent. Dimension Estates can provide and assist you with the required information. Once HMRC approval is given we will able to transfer rental income without deductions.
Legislation requires security deposits for Assured Shorthold Tenancies to be registered with a government approved scheme. Dimension Estates can register the deposit on behalf of the landlord. We are members of the Deposit Protection Service.
You may be required to apply for a licence to rent your property. Regulations vary depending on the Borough and style of property.

Fantastic agent, we can't praise them highly enough. We bought and sold with Dimension Estates this year. Dillon and Adam were incredible. We were expecting our first baby a few days after completion and nothing was too much trouble. They made what could have been a very stressful time incredibly smooth. Going as far as arranging for clearing the new house, cleaning carpets and servicing the boiler all before we moved in and even helping pack our last car load!
I purchased my flat in E5 with Dimensions last May and it was a very easy and smooth purchase. They communicated very well to me, very responsive and quick on all matters. They also helped me with some of my odd demands with no moaning or rudeness. Would 100% recommend!!
Excellent services provided by our agents at Dimension. They were responsive and friendly to deal with throughout the entire process, and have stayed in touch to make sure everything continues to run smoothly for us in our home. Thanks for making what could have been a stressful process very manageable.
I have been a landlord on Dimension Estates books for 18 months and I am exceptionally well satisfied with the service. Nothing is too much trouble for Mohammed and I feel that I am very well advised and cared for. I recommend him to all my friends.
