Fitness for Human Habitation Reports

Starting April 2019 all our new inventory reports will include the Fitness For Human Habitation report included and completely free. The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018, known as the Homes Act, replaces Section 8 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 (LTA 1985) in England, with the purpose of improving living standards in the private and social rented sectors.

Under the Housing Act 2004, landlords and agents were not required to ensure their rental properties were free of potentially harmful hazards. Consequently, an offence was only committed where the landlord or agent had failed to comply with an Improvement Notice issued by the local authority.

The tenant could not take their landlord or agent directly to Court and had to rely on the action of the local authority. Consequently landlords and agents could legally rent out defective properties and unless this was addressed by the local authority they had no requirement to rectify any hazards.

The new rules apply to all domestic tenancies granted or renewed on or after 20 March 2019 and effect tenancies in England only.

We provide all types of property inventories for letting agents and private landlords, new inventory make, check-in, mid-term and check-outs. 3 hours delivery on all our reports, super-fast whilst still comprehensive, accurate and consistent inventories to protect the property owner and the tenant’s deposit.
