Background

The Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017 highlighted the importance of ensuring properties are properly risk assessed, however 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 uncertain 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. Landlords and agents must have an understanding of the legislation surrounding fire safety to keep tenants safe.  

Suitable for

  • All landlords whether they rent property as single dwellings, HMO or blocks
