We are proud to announce another key industry partnership to help both landlords and agents manage their relationship with tenants and provide safety and security in the rental home.
In collaboration with Safe2, already the leading provider of property safety certificates across the UK, landlords will now be able to access the skills and services of qualified and insured electricians, gas safety engineers and fire risk assessors via the Workstreams network.
The number of renters are expected to increase from 4.5m to over 6m over the next few years. This is due to relocating for work, to access more space or to bridge a gap between home ownership; meaning landlords are under increased pressure to ensure that the rental property is, and remains compliant, with Government mandated legislation for safety in the home.
A Gas Safety Certificate (CP12) must now be issued to the tenant before they move in or within 28 days of the check in. As of April 2021, all rental properties must now comply with the rules governing the issue of an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) to ensure that both the supply and appliances provided are safe.
Since the introduction in of the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations in 2015; rental properties must have at least one smoke alarm installed on every storey and a carbon monoxide alarm in any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (eg a coal fire, wood burning stove).
That doesn’t mean the landlord or letting agent have discharged their duties. Landlords must make sure the alarms are in working order at the start of each tenancy or risk a fine of up to £5,000 if they fail to comply with any remedial notice issued through non compliance.
In partnership with Safe2; InventoryBase customers will be able to conveniently book Safe2Buy and Safe2Rent certificates and individual certificates via InventoryBase Workstreams, as well as have complete visibility of back-stored reports against the property.
