Landlords there has been a new legal ruling on your responsibilities regarding the exterior of your rental property. Please read this brief review put together by our legal team... 

http://blog.legal4landlords.com/index.php/new-legal-ruling-on-landlord-repair-responsibilities/ 

The real significance of this case for UK landlords and letting agents means that landlords can be sued in respect of areas of the property which they do not own themselves.

For example
A private drive serving a property over which the landlord has a right of access, or
Common areas of a block of flats

This means that from now on, landlords will need to be pro-active in ensuring that such common areas are kept in a proper state of repair and letting agents will need to widen the scope of their periodic rental property inspections to include paths, communal areas and the like, and it would be very wise for landlords to check the scope of their Landlord Buildings Insurance protection.

Because of this new landmark ruling there is now no immediate obligation for tenants to report any damage that occurs in rented properties, meaning that landlords and their appointed letting agents will have to be even more vigilant in order to identify potential problems and get them sorted out quickly.

Many UK landlords already know the benefits of conducting regular routine maintenance on their rental properties to help them ensure that their rental properties are warm, dry and inviting, in order to increase the desire of potential tenant applicants who will want to live there.
Below are a few routine maintenance ideas that can help landlords beat the winter blues, avoid potentially costly repair bills as well as avoiding being forced to claim on Landlords Buildings Insurance, that will help them to attract new tenants looking for a decent rental property during the coldest winter months.
Following a few simple routine maintenance guidelines can help landlords keep rental properties let to tenants for longer periods, and if action is needed now, tackling identified repair issues immediately can prevent landlords being forced to make a claim on Landlord’s Buildings Insurance.
