Following on from my previous blog, it’s important that you also know what your landlord or letting agent is responsible for while you are renting their property. That way, you can be sure that they’re doing what they’re supposed to. Knowledge is power!
As you can see there are a lot of things that a landlord must adhere to, so it’s important you know your rights as a tenant, to ensure that your landlord or letting agent is being compliant. Forewarned is forearmed, you don’t want to be taken advantage of, so knowing what should be happening is vital to ensure your safety and to give you peace of mind.
