The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 came into force on the 20th March 2019

A reminder that the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 came into force in England on 20th March. It’s been brought in to ensure that, legally, rental properties must be let and maintained ‘in a state of fitness for human habitation’. That means it’s more important than ever that any Buy to Let you own comes to the market in a good and safe condition and remains so throughout the term of the lease. (See further information which was included in our February blog, five things for landlords to look out for in 2019.)
