Things to consider

Whether you want to handle everything yourself, some of it, or absolutely none of it, we’ve got you covered! At Lemon Street Lettings, we deal with all aspects of lettings with tailor-made packages to suit all landlords.

Landlord Responsibilities

Energy Performance Certificate

An EPC is a document which sets out the energy performance of the property – This also helps determine running costs.Β 

This is valid for 10 years. All landlords are required to purchase an EPC before letting a property.

Gas Safety Certificate

This is to ensure all appliances, pipes and flues are in safe and working order – this must be carried out every 12 months by a qualified Gas Safe Register engineer.

Electrical Installation Condition Report

An (EICR) identifies any problems with your properties electrical systems. This allows a qualified engineer to fix any problems, bringing your home up to a safe and legal standard.

Things you might want to know about

We offer free, no-obligation market appraisals and strive to offer good customer service to landlords and tenants.

Rent guarantee insurance covers your rental income if your tenants stop paying their rent.

With thousands of tenants going into arrears each year, renters insurance can provide landlords with peace of mind and valuable back-up.


All landlords must provide installed and working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on their property. There must be at least one smoke alarm installed on every story and a carbon monoxide detector in any room containing a fuel-burning appliance.

It’s important to factor in the day to day running costs of a property into your financial calculations for rental yield.

For example:

  • Letting agent fees
  • Interest
  • Redecorating
  • Insurance
  • Annual safety checks
  • General building maintenance

In 2019 a new law came into force to make sure rented properties are ‘fit for human habitation’ meaning, it’s safe and free from things that could cause serious harm.

Founder & CEO

Having worked for a large Estate and Letting agent within Cornwall, I felt it was the right time to make the move and start Lemon Street Lettings Ltd. I am from the local area and have lived in Cornwall for most of my life, apart from a few years where I moved to London to learn the financial markets.
