Problems begin with landlords ignorance of law

Problems begin with landlords ignorance of law

Some of the biggest issues in the private rental sector are found when landlords are ignorant of the laws that they are required to operate under, according to one expert.

Tessa Shepperson of landlordlaw.co.uk, said: "If landlords deal with things properly and comply with the various regulations then they should be fine. The problem is when they are ignorant of these."

She added that it was impossible to be a landlord on pure instinct, and it is vital that anyone planning to do so takes the chance to learn of their legal obligations beforehand.

Ms Shepperson said that it is never an excuse to claim to be ignorant of laws, and this can work against landlords if they end up in court over an issue.

It was recently reported by Upad that landlords across the UK are set to enjoy further good fortunes, after the news that many will be seeing rental prices increasing in coming months.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801366892-ADNFCR
