Private landlords have been offered some advice on how to avoid being taken to court.

Landlord legal issues can be averted by following a number of processes, according to property website Hip-consultant.co.uk.

If maintenance work needs to be done, a property owner should act quickly, the portal stated.

"This helps to fix the problem before it gets worse and also helps you avoid lawsuits that a tenant might file if he's injured as a result of the delay in repairs,"it added.

Hip-consultant.co.uk also advised landlords to have property and liability insurance, which covers them against some lawsuits. Indeed, Let Insurance Services suggested last week that insuring a building is a vital move for any landlord.

Landlord responsibilities make a lengthy list and another one someone renting out a home needs to follow once a tenancy agreement is signed is to tour the rental property with the customer.

Both parties can make notes of the property's condition, which can be referred to at end of a tenancy when the decision about deposit returns is made.
