Landlord compliance is complicated. Regulations around renting a home are many and some come with big fines for breaches. Already this year, anyone letting a home to rent has had to contend with the MEES Regulations and changes to energy efficiency standards, while new rules on electrical safety inspections are coming from 1 July.
A whole series of other regulations such as right to rent, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and gas safety checks are also down to the landlord to enforce. So we’ve made it easy to keep track of all the latest rules and regs with our newly launched cloud-based lettings platform, PlanetRent.
PlanetRent allows all key documents and files to be accessed virtually. In just one click, all new tenants are provided with legally required documents such as a copy of the Government’s How to Rent checklist and Deposit Protection Scheme details, as well as energy performance and gas safety certificates. This gives landlords peace of mind that every legal box is ticked and helps you avoid compliance-related fines that could cost you as much as £20,000.
Our real-time compliance dashboard tells you exactly what needs doing when:
Property Compliance: EPCs, Gas safety, HMO Registrations, PAT testing, Passport expiry dates, Deposit certificates, Inventories.
Tenancy compliance: Right to rent cheques, deposit certificates.
Equipment log: White goods asset register, meter MPAN/MRPN/SPID No’s , meter locations & serial numbers & boiler maintenance contracts.
PlanetRent automates compliance reports to land on your desk weekly or monthly and/or go direct to your compliance manager or accountant. And best of all, our lettings software means that when the law changes, so do your processes. It’s easy – and it’s automated.
Other competing rental platforms don’t include reports or compliance visibility for landlords but don’t take our word for it. Our killer pricing model means you can pay-as-you-go, and there are no sign-up fees or subscriptions. So why not check out PlanetRent today and find out for yourself how it can save you time, money and hassle – and give you the comfort of knowing that your properties are fully compliant with all the legal requirements.
