Homes (Fitness For Human Habitation) Act 2018
On 20 March 2019 the above Act came into force. This means that any tenancy that begins or renews after this date will need to be free from potential hazards. If they are not, tenants are now able to apply direct to the courts to enforce the legislation rather than having to wait for local authorities to provide an Improvement Notice.
If you have any concerns and would like us to manage your property on your behalf to ensure that this legislation change and the following changes to legislation that are due later this year are abided by then please contact the office on 01384 459999.
