Heating

All rental properties must have one or more fixed heaters, which can directly heat the main Living room to at least 18°C and can maintain this temperature all year round. Certain heating devices that are inefficient, unaffordable or unhealthy will not meet the requirements of this standard.

Moisture Ingress and Drainage

Rental properties must have adequate drainage for the removal of storm water, surface water and ground water, including an appropriate outfall. The drainage system must include gutters, downpipes and drains for the removal of water from the roof. Checking and maintaining roof, guttering, downpipes and cladding is critical to keeping the property weathertight.

Draught Stopping

Landlords must block any unreasonable gaps and holes in walls, ceilings, windows, floors, and doors that cause noticeable draughts.
