Has flexible working changed the Reddish property market?

Defining the modern working week in 2018 isn’t a straightforward process. As we embrace technology, the lines between daily commutes to work and working from remote locations become less transparent. From a property perspective, this means people with flexible working patterns can be more selective about the location of their next home. But what does this mean for Reddish?

Landlord gas safety regulations 2018

It gives me pleasure to share some good news for landlords with respect to proposed changes to landlord gas safety regulations and responsibilities.

Current landlord gas safety responsibilities

If the property is supplied with gas, a landlord has the responsibility to ensure the gas appliances are safe and checked by a qualified GasSafe registered engineer.

The gas engineer is to issue a gas safety certificate confirming the appliances have been tested and are safe to use. A copy of said certificate is to be given to the tenant.

The landlord thereafter has the responsibility to have an annual gas safety check with a new certificate issued after each annual visit.
