The Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017 highlighted the importance of ensuring 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 unclear 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. This course is designed to give you a complete guide to the relevant fire safety legislation you must comply with to keep tenants safe and gives you the practical skills in order to become accomplished at managing fire risk effectively.
This training course qualifies for 3 continuous professional development (CPD) points which can help towards or maintain your accreditation with the NRLA. If you are interested in becoming an accredited landlord with the NRLA, CPD points are necessary to achieve that status.
NRLA Accreditation recognises landlords who have agreed to maintain professional standards in the management and maintenance of their rented property and deal fairly and professionally with their tenants. Accredited members demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of their responsibilities and obligations and strive to maintain, increase and improve their knowledge of the market through training and development. CPD points are awarded for all activities which improve those attributes and are a requisite of membership of the NRLA Accreditation Scheme.
