December 2018 saw the introduction of legal minimum standards for Jersey rental accommodation.
The Public Health and Safety (Rented Dwellings – Minimum Standards and Prescribed Hazards) (Jersey) Order 2018, specifies certain minimum requirements to ensure properties do not pose a risk to the health and safety of tenants.
Under the Order, Landlords must:
- install and keep in good working order, a smoke alarm on each storey of rented accommodation (whether or not that storey has a habitable room)
- install and keep in good working order, a carbon monoxide alarm in any habitable room of a rented dwelling with an oil, gas, wood, coal, or similar burner/heater
- have an annual "Gas Safe" inspection of any rented dwelling with a gas supply (including bottled gas) and provide a copy to the tenant and retain the inspection record for, generally, at least 2 years
- commission a professional electrical inspection before any new / renewed tenancy or within 5 years of the last inspection and again provide a copy to the tenant and retain the inspection record for, generally, at least 5 years also, from 31 October 2014, all rented properties need to have a condition report.
- A condition report is a way for a landlord to record the physical condition and state of repair of a property when a tenant moves in and when they move out.
A condition report includes:
- all the fixed parts of a property.
- the condition of walls, ceilings and floors in each room.
- any fixtures, fittings and furniture which belong to the landlord and come as part of the tenancy.
It is compulsory for the landlord to complete a condition report within seven days of the tenant agreeing to live in the property.
The tenant has seven days following the commencement of the lease to accept or comment on the condition report and if the tenant has not signed by the seventh day the Condition report is taken as accepted by the Tenant to the extent that it's completed.
If a condition report isn't completed at all, the Landlord could be subject to legal action and potentially fined up to £10,000.
