Stockton Rental Standard
In September 2014 the Government published the RICS Private Rented Sector Code. This cross-industry code is intended to promote best practice in the letting and management of private rented sector housing in England which landlords should familiarise themselves with.
Landlords are particularly encouraged to review the Landlords Checklist on page 25 of the Code of Practice.
Additionally in September 2014 the Government published a model tenancy agreement for use in the private rented sector where a shorthold tenancy is being entered into.
