This restriction would also have applied where no valid gas safety certificate exists or where the tenant has not been given an EPC for the property but its failure in Parliament is no reason to avoid ensuring all necessary paperwork is valid and up to date.
EPCs are arranged at the point of marketing by all our branches. Our property managers arrange gas safety certificates for our managed properties and it remains a legal requirement for Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) to have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted. However, we advise all landlords to consider the installation of alarms to protect the occupier and help prevent any legal action being taken against a landlord.
