UK Landlords: your guide to the Homes Act

Measure indoor air quality to keep your tenants and properties safe and healthy.

What is the Homes Act and how does it affect Landlords?

The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act ensures that rented properties are safe and secure and has been in full force since March 2020. An implied agreement between landlords and tenants, the act ensures that rented properties are fit for human habitation and that they are free from anything that might cause serious harm to the tenants.
