HEALTHY HOMES SURVEYS

 

The new Residential Tenancies (Healthy Homes Standards) Regulations 2019 have now been made public on 1 July 2019.

If you are a current landlord or a new investor buying into the marketplace you will need to know if the investment you own or are buying meets the Residential Tenancies (Healthy Homes Standards) Regulations 2019.

TelferYoung now provides a Healthy Homes Survey which is a detailed report covering all items required to meet these new standards and also includes photos. Once all items have passed, TelferYoung will supply a TY Healthy Homes Survey Compliance Certificate which the landlord can use to prove their property complies with the Residential Tenancies (Healthy Homes Standards) Regulations 2019.

Items required to meet the standards include:

  • Heating
  • Insulation
  • Ventilation
  • Moisture and Drainage
  • Draught-Stopping
