Making Sure Your Holiday Let is Compliant
One of the most important factors to take into consideration when managing your own holiday let is making sure that you meet all the regulations. While it is easy to find out all the regulations for long term lets (6 months plus), it has not always been straightforward for holiday lets.
We have a brief summary of what is required below, as well as best practice for peace of mind :
Hard wired interlinked smoke/heat detector system
Annual gas certificate for all gas appliances
Carbon monoxide alarm
Risk assessment of the property
Means of escape plan
Safety card detailing phone numbers for emergency services
Fire blanket and/or fire extinguisher located close to possible hazards (hob etc)
Portable appliance test (PAT)
