Would you kindly confirm that these are the current requirements for landlords to follow.

EPC — Every 5 years or before any new tenancy

Gas safety certificate – Every 12 Months

EICR-PAT Certificate— Every 5 years

Legionella assessment----- New tenancy or if the house is vacant

Smoke alarms—Should be tested at the start of each tenancy and it should be stressed upon tenants to test the smoke alarms weekly or monthly

Provide a how-to-rent leaflet.

Thank you
