Residential Fire Safety
What is required of you as the Landlord or managing agent?
- Fire Risk Assessment – conducted by a competent person
- Fire Safety Policy
- Information for residents and tenants
- Provide and maintain Fire safety equipment
Are there legal ramifications?
Unfortunately things do go wrong and as a Landlord, or property manager, you have responsibilities under the ‘Order’, but provided you take all reasonable steps to adequately manage the fire related risks within your properties, as indicated above you will have shown ‘due diligence’ and therefore be deemed compliant.
