Landlord Law


Hello and welcome to this PRS Code Companion.

This is a free to use guide to the PRS Code (published by RICS) which is intended to apply to the private rented sector in England & Wales UK.

Each page looks at a section of the code – the code wording is reproduced at the top with comments from me below.  Some parts of the text are highlighted – this reflects the highlighting in the code pdf and generally indicates that the wording applies just to landlords or to agents.

I will be updating the various pages over time to reflect legal developments.

Note that the comments to the code text (ie below the vertical line) are mine alone and are not a part of the code itself.

If you think any of the sections are missing important information, please use the feedback form to let me know.
