Let us take away the hassle of chasing tenant signatures
No Letting Go can automate the tenant signature process, which enables the Check In to be fully electronic, saving time and money. In addition, our new DigiSign function will take away the hassle of chasing the tenant signature, once an inventory has been completed.
DigiSign – AUTOMATING THE SIGNATURE PROCESS
Our DigiSign process will send out text or email reminders to the tenant (automatically notifying you of each reminder). The tenant simply signs electronically via our link or adds additional comments and photos directly into the report. Any additions are verified by us and the report is returned. If the tenant forgets to respond following the reminders, no problem – the report is deemed accepted, and we notify the tenant.
BESPOKE THE PROCESS TO FIT WITH YOURS
You have the freedom to fit the process to your own by selecting the frequency and method of the reminders. Once set, the automation completely removes this task for you.

Smoke and CO Installation
In October 2015, new regulations were introduced to the private rented sector requiring every landlord to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on each floor of a property. The landlord must evidence that all alarms are tested and working at the start of each tenancy. Fines for non-compliance are a maximum of £5,000 for each failure. No Letting Go will ensure you are compliant. We will check that your alarms are in the correct location, are functioning at move in and install new ones where necessary. All No Letting Go reports have a smoke and carbon monoxide safety section that will guarantee you meet the regulations.
Right to rent
From 1 February 2016, it has been a legal requirement for landlords or agents in England to ensure that any tenant or occupier that rents their property has the right to remain.
Landlords who let private property in England, or take in lodgers could be liable for a civil penalty if they enter into a tenancy agreement involving an illegal migrant. If a landlord makes the relevant document checks and retains copies as required they will establish a statutory excuse against such a penalty.
No Letting Go can verify the original documentation at Check In and warrant that they match the tenant’s appearance.

Legionella Risk Assessments
In April 2014, the regulations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and control of substances hazardous to health regulations 2002 were revised to include domestic hot and cold-water systems. No Letting Go provide a full legionella risk assessment report every two years as recommended or sooner if there is a change of tenant.

Section 28, Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
“ A risk assessment must be carried out to identify an assess the exposure to legionella bacteria from water systems on the premises and any precautionary measures need. The duty holder is responsible for ensuring the risk assessment is carried out”.
Housing Health & Safety Rating System
The HHSRS was introduced under the Housing Act 2004, and became effective from 1 April 2006 and replaced the housing fitness standard. The Government introduced the system as the way of deciding whether the housing conditions of residential premises are satisfactory. It looks at whether premises have any defects that may give rise to hazard, which in turn could cause harm to the occupiers, or any visitors. A residential property should be capable of satisfying the basic fundamental needs for the everyday life of a household, such as providing shelter, space and facilities for the occupants.
The HHSRS assesses 29 housing hazards and the effects that each may have on the health and safety of the current or future occupant or any visitor to the property. It applies to all residential properties irrespective of whether they are occupied by a homeowner or tenant. It is not possible to completely remove all risk of harm from within a property, but the system provides a way that hazards can be assessed and to decide on what is the best way of dealing with them .
