Legislation Changes

The Lettings Market will be undergoing some legislation changes, which will affect agents and landlords:

Abolishing Section 21: The government has confirmed that it will put an end to ‘no fault’ evictions by repealing section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 as part of the Renters Reform Bill.

The Paper proposes simplifying tenancy structures by transitioning all tenancies to periodic – meaning that the tenancy will end only if the tenant chooses to leave, or if the landlord has a valid reason, as defined by law.  Read More

EPC requirements:  Currently in order to let out a property you would need to have minimum EPC rating of ‘E’.

The government have committed to look at a long-term path to improve energy performance standards of privately rented homes in England and Wales, with the aim for as many of them as possible to be upgraded to EPC Band C. All new tenancies from 1st April 2025 and all existing tenancies by 1st April 2028 must meet band C or higher on an EPC, where practical, cost-effective and affordable. Read More

Carbon Monoxide Detectors are also changing so landlords should be aware of the proposed new requirements. Currently, a carbon monoxide alarm must be fitted in every room, where there is a solid fuel -burning appliance

However, the government are considering extending those rules to include any room used as living accommodation where there is a fire or gas boiler. Read More

Material Information for property listings: A property’s council tax band or rate and the property price and tenure information (for sales) must be included on all property listings by the end of May 2022 and these data fields will should appearing in portals now. These changes represent the first phase of a project by the National Trading Standards Estate and Letting Agency Team, in partnership with industry leaders and the UK’s major property portals, to define what constitutes material information for property listings.

AXIA Launching: New Win10 Cloud Desktops with PMX

For some time AXIA have provided an option to access PMX via a Cloud Desktop (VDI).

With the current Covid situation and unknown timelines of when any kind of normality will be (if ever) restored, AXIA are launching a new Windows 10 Cloud Desktop with PMX.

A secure Cloud Desktop offers you:

  • Security and data containment – Your business data will remain within the Cloud Desktop and not on users’ home devices or laptops where it can easily be breached.
  • Access with slow internet connections and limited data plans – you can use a Cloud Desktop with slower connection vs most other cloud-based packages.
  • Bring your 365 – you can use Microsoft 365 packages on your Cloud Desktops.
  • No need for expensive laptops – If your workforce are using old laptops (or desktops) at home, you can give them faster Cloud Desktops whilst using the older machine as a terminal. Plus, if your workforce already has a personal computer setup at home, they can use them to connect to the Cloud desktop without any security, licensing or data leakage issues.
  • Access your Cloud Desktop on the move with Tablet or Smart Phone.  Ideal for quick data enquiry and update.
