As a landlord, what are my legal obligations?
You have a legal responsibility to maintain your property inside and out, ensuring that it complies with recommended safety standards. If your property is leasehold you should ensure that you adhere to reasonable requests from the freeholder or managing agent and that ground rent is paid.
Since 1 April 2018, for England and Wales, it is your responsibility to ensure that your property meets the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES). For more information go to the Government website.
To familiarise yourself with the law in detail you can view the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 on the Government Legislation website.
