Landlord Regulations

At Blue Crystal, we’ve been managing properties in West London for many years. We know that initially, you might be surprised to know that there are more legal steps involved when letting a property then selling it.
You don’t only have national rules and regulations: you also have the local ones. You need to know your rights and responsibilities as a landlord and your tenant’s ones.

For this reason, in this category archive, we aim to explain very clearly the main landlord regulations.
