Lofts in let houses often cause concern. Quite often, the loft access is right at the top of the stairs, and usually there is no access ladder fitted. There may be a risk of the tenants slipping and falling down the stairs. In such cases, probably the best solution would be to exclude the loft from the tenancy. If you wish to take such action do ensure that it is stated in the tenancy agreement and that you bring it to the attention of the tenants, stating that it has been done in the interests of their safety. Similarly with cellars, providing there are no gas and/or electricity meters down there, as obviously the tenants will need access to these. Very often steps down to cellars are dangerous with no handrail. If lofts and/or cellars are excluded from a tenancy, it is best, if possible, to padlock the access.
