The Homes (Fitness for Habitation) Bill, introduced in 2019, requires landlords to ensure their homes are fit for habitation, at the beginning of a tenancy, and throughout.
Fines for infringement of regulations can exceed £30,000, so it's essential to ensure your property is well maintained and safe.
No other survey considers how the construction and condition of the home affects the way tenants will live within it. The two are inextricably linked, and only by considering them together can you ensure the ongoing comfort and safety of your tenants.
You get all the features of the Home Condition Survey, plus
- A review of the 29 potential hazard profiles listed under the Housing Health & Safety Rating System (used by local authorities to prosecute landlords in the Private Rented Sector).
