Health and Safety Guidelines All rental homes must comply with health and
safety standards and landlords have a legal obligation to ensure the
safety of their tenants. Olympia Estates requires copies of all health and
safety certificates and information from the landlord and can arrange
for these to be carried out if necessary. Each property must;
Have a gas safety
certificate for every appliance in the property. This must be carried
out by a Corgi registered gas engineer and renewed every year.

work carried out on gas appliances is done so by a qualified Corgi
electrical equipment in the property is safe, we recommend that
landlords acquire an electrical certificate as proof of the equipments
safety even thought this is not a legal requirement.
Ensure any furniture in the property meets the appropriate fire standards.

Ending your tenancy
It is important that you end your tenancy
properly if you are thinking of moving. The first step to ending a
tenancy really starts with the agreement you sign when you first take
the property. This will include the terms relating to how much notice
you or the landlord need to give in order to end the agreement and it is
important that you read through this carefully before you sign it. We
can advise you on the process of ending your tenancy and, if required,
assist you in finding your new home.
