It’s a bewildering time for most people.
At Nest in Essex we’re working hard to ensure our landlords and tenants are as well informed as possible.
Following the initial shock since lockdown was announced last month, the situation has calmed down, but we’re still monitoring it daily.
We’ve sourced five websites and articles you might find helpful during lockdown.
The Government has created several documents explaining its position and offering guidance.
The main page is: COVID-19 and renting: guidance for landlords, tenants and local authorities. It features several downloadable documents.
Gas Safe Register
The Gas Safe Register is the official Gas registration organisation for the UK. By law, all gas engineers need to be on its register. Last week it released an update on Government advice around the Coronavirus and the responsibilities of landlords and gas safety.
This is Money Article
There’s been lots of coverage in the media around landlords and rental properties since the outbreak started. One of the more useful articles we read was from the This is Money website.
It covers a range of topics including how to apply for a buy to let mortgage holiday. The link to it is below.
Residential Landlords Association
This campaigning organisation for residential landlords features a website with regularly updated news and other information.
