Staying legal in lettings – are you a compliant landlord?

August 19, 2016

It can be difficult, as a landlord, to know what your obligations are and what legislation applies to you. This is especially true if being a landlord is not your business, as shown by a report conducted by Kate Faulkner with the support of the TDS Charitable Foundation showed.

The report highlighted that many landlords were unaware of many their legal obligations as a landlord, and with 145 Government statutes and regulations that must be followed it is little wonder.

If you’re a landlord – test your level of compliance awareness by taking our 2 minute compliance quiz.

At Northwood, we take great pride in our ability to guide landlords through the process of renting out a property and offer many levels of managed services to accommodate all landlords, from those just starting out with their first property, to those that may have a property portfolio.
