EPC
- All rental properties with a new tenancy in England & Wales are required by law to have an Energy Performance Certi cate (EPC). An EPC is a
review of the energy ef ciency and environmental impact of all landlords’ property. It covers the running cost for heating, hot water and lighting. It will
also suggest energy saving improvements for all properties and lasts for 10 years.
I/We would like Anthony Lettings to arrange for an EPC
Gas Safety
- All properties with a gas supply must have an ‘Annual Gas Safety Certi cate’. Also it is widely identi ed that most common faults reported
by tenants are boiler breakdowns, so it is highly recommended that at the same time as the annual gas safety inspection the gas engineer carries out a
boiler service. During a service the gas engineer checks and cleans out components, whilst also checking pressures and completing a gas analysis,
which could prevent expensive boiler components breaking, and the resulting costly repairs. Also, Industry Press has highlighted a number of cases
where tenants have been hospitalised due to exposure to carbon monoxide (CO). It is highly recommended to have a CO alarm at all rented properties.
I/We require :
An annual gas safety
Annual gas safety & CO alarm
Annual gas safety & annual boiler service
Annual gas safety, annual boiler service & CO alarm
Annual boiler service & CO alarm None
Inventory
- An Inventory is a schedule of the condition of a property, taken immediately before the commencement of a Tenancy. Inventories are
required in order to assist in restoring a property to the same condition (fair wear and tear excepted) as the commencement of a Tenancy and can be
used to ascertain areas of responsibility for an out-going tenant. As deposits are protected by Government endorsed schemes it is extremely impor-
tant to have an Inventory to back-up any proposed deduction from a deposit. Anthony Lettings use an independent specialist Inventory company and
a schedule of costs will be available upon request.
I/We require Anthony Lettings to arrange for an Inventory and schedule of condition
Deposits
- Anthony Lettings will take from the tenant(s) a security deposit equivalent to one month rent or one and half months where applicable.
The Government has awarded contracts to three companies to run the tenancy deposit protection schemes and Anthony Lettings protect deposits
with www.mydeposits.co.uk. ‘My Deposits’ charge a fee to protect each deposit and whereby Anthony Lettings hold the deposit the Landlord agrees
to pay the fee, which is currently:
(Nb. This is chargeable each time a set of tenants renew for a further term)
Deep clean scheme
- As per page 2 of the Landlord Prospectus, one of the main issues that arise in the lettings procedure is the cleanliness of a property.
In order to control the dispute levels, Anthony Lettings aim to ensure each property is in a professionally clean condition before each tenancy commences.
A deep/professional clean of a property will leave a property in immaculate condition and if a cleaning certi cate is produced to new tenants, Anthony
Lettings can then ensure the property is in pristine condition for all future tenancies. This being because if any vacating tenants do not return the property in
a professionally clean condition, a deduction can be made from their deposit to return the property to such standard in time for any new tenancy. The cost
of the service depends on the size of the property and a schedule of costs will be available upon request.
