Support for landlords

We offer help and support to landlords to make sure that rented homes in Aldershot and Farnborough are safe and well-managed.

Keeping landlords informed and involved

We aim to keep landlords informed and involved. To do this we hold an annual information forum for private landlords and letting agents.

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have been unable to schedule this meeting for 2020. 

The event is an opportunity to get advice and guidance, meet other landlords, share experiences and gain valuable information which may help your business.

Show you are a responsible landlord

Landlords can also join the Landlord Accreditation Scheme to improve their knowledge of the sector and to show tenants that they are a good landlord. For details, see the National Landlords’ Association website.

Help renting out your property

If you own or manage a property in Aldershot or Farnborough and are looking to rent to tenants, we offer free help.  Visit our Help renting out your property page for more information.

Minimum energy efficiency standards

If you are selling or letting a property, you will need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Since 1 April 2018, landlords of domestic properties are not allowed to grant a new tenancy or renew an existing tenancy for a property with an EPC rating of F and G unless there is a registered exemption.

From 1 April 2020, this rating applies to all domestic rented properties, even if there is no change in tenancy. Therefore, from 1 April 2020 landlords may not let properties with an EPC rating of F or G, even if there is an existing tenant. 

For more information, visit the government's guidance for landlords on minimum energy efficiency standards.
