WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Key in the Lock

I download the checklist and I found it really useful - It made me realise how easy it is to miss important steps.

Yellow Lounge Chair

I saw the compliance checklist on Facebook and didn't think I would need it but I was wrong - I now use Avenue to manage my houses.

Wooden Door

The checklist is free - download it - I use it as an audit for my property and I found the Avenue girls really helpful.

Front Door

There were some points in the checklist that I didn't know about and now Avenue take that worry off my mind about keeping up to date with legislation.

Flowerpots

Avenue have taken over the management of my properties and they have already spotted issues that my previous agent should have picked up on.

Gray Sofa

There is so much legislation now, I can't keep on top of it all and that's one of the reasons why I am using Avenue.

 

What happens if I am not compliant?

Here's a few examples...

 
What happens if I am not compliant

Rent Smart Wales: 

Failure to register or providing false or misleading information on your Rent Smart Wales registration is an offence which could lead to: 

  • A fixed penalty notice of up to £150

  • Prosecution and unlimited fines

  • Rent repayment order

  • Rent stopping order; and 

  • Your ability to secure possession of the property being restricted

Gas Safety Certificate:

As a landlord you have duties under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 to arrange maintenance by a Gas Safe registered engineer for all pipe work, appliances and flues, which you own and have provided for use.

The Health and Safety Executive gives gas safety a high priority and will take the appropriate action to ensure compliance with the regulations.

 

This could result in a

  • substantial fine

  • and/or a custodial sentence

Failure to protect a deposit:

Tenancy Deposit Protection (TDP) legislation currently applies to England and Wales where the tenancy is an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST).

 

Failure to comply with the TDP legislation and you could be ordered to:

  • Return the deposit back to the tenant

  • Penalty fine of up to 3 x the deposit value as compensation to the tenant

  • Affect your ability to serve notice for possession
