Complete Fire Safety
The Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017 highlighted the requirement for landlords and agents to ensure their properties are properly risk assessed.
The legislation on fire safety is complex with different buildings and property types being subject to different laws and regulations. This can leave landlords and letting agents confused as to what fire safety precautions they must take.
As a 'responsible person' you have a legal duty to keep your property safe from fire through the provisions of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
As a landlord or responsible letting agent you must ensure there is a comprehensive fire risk assessment that details the fire safety provisions that are in the property. You should also develop an emergency evacuation plan for residents and ensure they know the actions they need to take in the event of a fire.
