Exempted items are: curtains, carpets, bed linen, duvets, period and antique furniture manufactured before 1950.
All furniture purchased new since 1st March 1990 should comply – if it does it will have a safety label attached to it at the point of sale. If in doubt, the items should be removed.
For more information, you can download a copy of the regulations here: http://www.legislation.gov.uk
We can, if required, arrange for gas and electrical safety checks to be carried out on your behalf by a qualified engineer.
Smoke alarmsAll properties built since June 1992 are required to have mains-operated interlinked smoke detectors/alarms fitted on every floor. Although it is not a requirement for older properties, we recommend that smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are fitted in all properties.
Non-Resident LandlordsIf you do not live in the UK, Porters are required by law to deduct Basic Rate Tax from rent received and pay this to the taxman, unless we have authorisation from them to pay rent to you without deducting tax.
If your usual place of abode is outside the UK, you will need to apply to HMRC under the Non-Resident Landlord Scheme to receive your rent from us without deduction of tax. Porters can provide you with the appropriate form or it can be downloaded from http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/
Individuals have a usual place of abode outside the UK if they usually live abroad. Individuals who leave the UK for over 6 months also have a usual place of abode outside the UK, even though their absence may be temporary and their local HMRC office continues to treat them as resident for tax purposes following their departure.
If your property is owned in joint names, you will both need to apply for approval to receive rent with no tax deducted. Once approval is granted by HMRC, we will be entitled to pay over rental income to you without deducting tax.
From one bedroom flats to six bedroom houses, we have an excellent track record in helping you maximise your rental potential.
