At Sil All Services Northampton, we don't want you to take on any chances, so we help you with a safety checklist before your new tenants move in.
It’s crucial to change the locks before the new tenant moves in. Nobody except for the new tenants should be able to have keys to the property.
The gas safety certificate must be up to date, and your new tenants should have a copy of it.
A registered electrician must inspect the electrical system for multiple occupations (HMO) premises every five years. The requirement isn’t mandatory for all rental premises, but it’s wise to do it anyway. As a landlord, you should run regular safety checks on electrical appliances and ensure that they all have a British Safety Standard Sign or CE marking.
Follow the fire safety regulations established by the British standards fundamentally and keep your property fire safe. You must seek that detectors are fitted and running at the beginning of the tenancy. There should be a smoke alarm on every floor, carbon monoxide detectors in every room with a solid fuel-burning appliance. Also, the furniture/furnishings should be flame resistant.
Keep in mind to maintain and test the fire alarms regularly. Your tenants have to know about the escape routes in case of a fire and the fire safety system.
After your new tenants have picked up the keys, don’t forget to provide them with a move-in checklist. They have to fill it in and give it back in 72 hours. Once you get it back, you should examine it together and only sign it if everything is fine. Needless to say, you should keep the move-in checklist for the move-out process.
