3. Advice and Safety Information

The application/granting of a licence, does not mean that the property is safe and meets all legal requirements relating to private rented properties.  

The owner/licence holder/manager is and remains responsible, for checking the condition of the property and taking action where necessary.

It is also the owner/licence holder/managers responsibility, to ensure that they are personally up to date and understand the legal requirements and any changes to these requirements.

The purpose of a condition audit is to ensure that at the time of the audit, the licence holder is complying with the licence conditions. It is the licence holders/managers responsibility to ensure that they understand the licence conditions and continue to inspect and monitor that the property is safe, meets legal requirements and the licence conditions.
