glass in rented properties
I just want some advice regarding glass in rented properties. In 2011 a tenant fell through a small glass pane on the front door and sustained a cut to her elbow. She took out a claim against me which I passed to my insurers. the claim was through Rapid (no win , no fee) She was eventually granted £6000 in damages.
What my question refers to is an existing property. I rent out a Victorian period house in London. It has beautiful stained glass feature on the front door which is original. Also the back doors are made of glass (not safety, I bought it with these glass doors) looking out on to the back gardens. What is the legislation regarding these in rented property. Is it OK to leave it as it is or should I be changing it. Although I didn't have to pay the £6000 myself my insurance has risin by £600 pa on this property.
thanking you in advance for your advice on this matter.
