The costs involved in letting your property consist of:
Energy Performance Certificate
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will need to be made available before marketing of the property can commence. If you have a recent Home Report an EPC forms part of this report and can be obtained from this report.
The instillation of mains wired smoke and heat detectors in the property will need to be completed prior to any tenancy commencing. Whilst preparing a property to let would this is the opportune time to install these.
An annual Landlords Gas Safe Certificate has to be completed and must be exhibited in the Tenant Information Pack. It must be made available before a tenancy commences. A Carbon Monoxide alarm should also be installed.
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) and Portable Appliance Test) PAT certification need to be completed every five years.
Landlords need to register with their Local Authority and landlord and property registration needs to be renewed every three years.
Legionella Risk Assessment

An inventory and Schedule of Property Condition
