Those who let out their property have been reminded of their landlord responsibilities by an industry website.

Estate Agent network has released a statement, which gives new landlords a few pointers on how they should conduct their business, including a tip to get an energy performance certificate (EPC) for their property

The advice is particularly relevant at this current time because there have been various studies published which suggest that the number of landlords in the UK is on the rise.

House price decreases over the last few years have resulted in so-called accidental landlords joining the market since the turn of the year, as people look to wait for the sales sector to pick up again.

"[An] EPC must be available to all new tenants, outlining the energy efficiency rating and the environmental impact of your property,"said "Your lettings agent will be able to arrange this for you, or you can opt to commission this yourself."
