Landlord Responsibilities

You’re a landlord if you rent out your property. As a landlord you must:

  • keep your rented properties safe and free from health hazards
  • make sure all gas and electrical equipment is safely installed and maintained
  • provide an Energy Performance Certificate for the property
  • protect your tenant’s deposit in a government-approved scheme
  • check your tenant has the right to rent your property if it’s in England
  • give your tenant a copy of the How to rent checklist when they start renting from you (you can email it to them)

Fire Safety

It’s your responsibility to:

  • fit and test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms
  • follow fire safety regulations for property in a purpose-built block of flats or for houses and property adapted into flats

Health and Safety Inspections

The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is used by your council to make sure that properties in its area are safe for the people who live there. This involves inspecting your property for possible hazards, such as uneven stairs.

If you own a property and rent it out, the council may decide to do an HHSRS inspection because:

  • your tenants have asked for an inspection
  • the council has done a survey of local properties and thinks your property might be hazardous

HHSRS Hazard Ratings

Inspectors look at 29 health and safety areas and score each hazard they find as category 1 or 2, according to its seriousness.

You must take action on enforcement notices from your council. You also have the right to appeal enforcement notices.

The council can do any of the following if they find a serious hazard:

  • issue an improvement notice
  • fix the hazard themselves and bill you for the cost
  • stop you or anyone else from using part or all of the property

Zero Deposit™

Fast Renting

Better Protection

Zero Deposit™ landlords are guaranteed six weeks security. As a landlord, you don’t pay a penny.

Good for tenants, Great for landlords

A Zero Deposit™ guarantee makes renting better for everyone involved. As a Zero Deposit landlord, you receive protection equal to a six-week deposit, even after the deposit cap! Tenants can purchase a no deposit guarantee for the equivalent of one week's rent, making renting more affordable. This can help speed up the renting process and reduce void periods. Renting a property using Zero Deposit does not mean zero responsibility. Tenants remain liable for any damages or rent arrears.

Better protected

With most cash deposits capped at five weeks, our six week guarantee gives you more cover.

Attract tenants faster

By reducing the upfront cost of renting, Zero Deposit speeds up the process and reduces void periods.

Fast payouts

Claims are adjudicated by TDS and landlords receive fair payouts within two working days - removing all of the traditional hassle.

How does it work?

Our process is smooth, simple and secure, making renting better for everyone. We’re here to provide support every step of the way.
  • A guarantee is purchased

    The landlord chooses to use Zero Deposit. Your tenant(s) then purchase a Zero Deposit™️ guarantee that gives you protection equivalent to six weeks rent.

  • The tenancy ends

    At the end of the tenancy, if there are no damages or unpaid rent, then the guarantee will end and there is no further action required.

  • Damages or unpaid rent

    If you can’t settle a dispute with your tenants your claim will be sent to TDS for adjudication. Approved claims will be paid to you within two working days.

Finding a home for furry friends

I remember a conversation, from more than a decade ago, with a woman who was desperately searching for a rental property where her three large dogs would be welcome. She was struggling, and in the end, her situation was only resolved, at the eleventh hour, when she agreed to pay a massive deposit to a landlord.

The tricky issues of damp and mould

Let’s face it, Britain can be a damp country to live in. If it’s not raining now, it will be soon. Joking aside, it’s not meant to be damp when we’re indoors, but sadly some properties are damp, and when damp conditions persist, mould can grow.
