My letting agents are telling me that I need to comply with new rules relating to safety by the end of the year – is this a national thing or just in Scotland?
Despite not having a legionnaires check, EICR, PAT test, two smoke detectors (if on one floor) and an interlinked heat shield in the kitchen in my own house, I am to have these in all my rental properties!
This is working out to be around £500 per flat and I have quite a few flats giving me a bill in the tens of thousands – can this be right?
I am not a slum landlord, every property always had an EICR, PAT, gas safety test, a hard wired smoke detector and a co2 detector in each flat and thought this would suffice!
Any way to ease the pain?
