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)
