It is no surprise that ensuring health and safety in rental accommodation is a pressing concern for many people and organisations. It is also fair to say that most landlords are keen to ensure they offer safe and secure accommodation.

Being a landlord is challenging, for several reasons. The demands of tenants can often leave many landlords feeling exasperated but there is a need to provide the best standard of service. For other landlords, the biggest issue they face is the heavy volume of regulations they must contend with.

If you are a landlord, you should be preparing for winter. This time of year can cause havoc at a rental property, but with our 6 property tips, landlords should be ready for winter.
