GAS SAFETY CHECK 

Gas safety inspection 
An annual gas safety inspection of your properties will ensure the installations and appliances are safe to use and they are compliant with the gas safety regulations. 
 
If you are letting a property, you are legally required to have a gas safety check carried out every 12 months. And if you are a homeowner, an annual gas-elec gas safety inspection will give you peace of mind. 

EPC 

New EPC Regulations 
If you are a property manager or a private landlord, from 1st April 2018, all private sector rental properties must reach a minimum of “E” rating on their Energy Performance Certificate. This applies firstly to new lets and renewed tenancies however; come April 2020 this will also apply for existing tenancies. After these dates going forward it will be illegal to rent a property which does not meet at least an “E” on its performance certificate. 
What is an EPC? 
An Energy Performance Certificate, otherwise known as an EPC, provides an energy rating for a home. 
 
The EPC outlines some ideas which help to improve the building’s energy performance. Implementing these can lead to lower energy bills, reduced carbon deposits and can make homes more attractive to potential buyers. 

LEGIONELLA 

Legionella Awareness 
Q: WHAT ADVICE SHOULD LANDLORDS BE GIVING TO TENANTS SO THEY CAN MINIMISE THE RISK? 
 
A: Landlords should inform tenants of the potential risk from Legionella and advise them on any actions arising from the Risk 
Assessment this may include: 
Controlling the release of water spray or stored water 
 
Raising the temperature of water – this can cause a scalding risk, so thermostatic mixing valves should be installed 
 
Showers that are rarely used, for example, should be flushed through regularly and water should not be left to stagnate 
The Risks 
The risk increases with age but some people are at higher risk including: 
 
People over 45 years of age 
 
Smokers and heavy drinkers 
 
People suffering from chronic respiratory or kidney disease 
 
Diabetes, lung and heart disease 
 
Anyone with an impaired immune system
