Coronavirus (COVID 19): information and guidance for tenants

Changes to the housing market, home moves, letting and sales

The process of finding, moving and landlord maintenance of a property will be different. The government has made it clear that, “tenants’ safety should be letting agents’ and landlords’ first priority”. It has produced guidance and also supported the industry in developing guidelines for both consumers and property professionals on safe home moves.

 

 

You still need to carry out essential works to your property

Landlords or their agents should still be accessible to tenants by telephone or email.
Essential works will still need to be addressed as these might seriously affect the health and safety of your tenants. These include remedying problems with water supply, safe electricity and gas supplies, fire safety, drainage, heating and hot water, pest control, leaks and works to windows and doors that may affect security. .The Council is continuing to provide a complaint response service to tenants during this period as part of our commitment to ensure all tenants have a safe place to live. Where necessary the Council will still take enforcement action if a landlord fails to carry out essential works.
