Safe as Houses Scheme for Residential Landlords

 We are pleased to announce the introduction of our new Safe as Houses Scheme for Residential Landlords.
The service provides Landlords with complete piece of mind, reduces costs and workload in complying with health and safety requirements.
We are offering a free initial survey of your property to assure you are meeting your health and safety compliance requirements

 

                                            

As a Landlord of Residential Property you face ever increasing responsibilities for the health and safety of your properties, their tenants, visitors and neighbours. 

There are a number of specific safety regulations that govern the letting of residential property, including Fire, Gas, Electricity, Legionella, and the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) to which all landlords must comply.

Likewise, where your employees or contractors provide services to the common parts of the building or     individual properties e.g. cleaning, maintenance etc., the premises are their place of work and under the Health and Safety at Work Act, and supporting Regulations, you must ensure their safety 

Failing to do so increases the risk of injury, ill health and even fatality, and the penalties for so are severe and could result in heavy fines and /or imprisonment.

 

In practical terms, the range of specific requirements and technical expertise necessary to complete them, mean that ensuring you are complying with these requirements can be difficult, time consuming and expensive. Consequently Landlords are increasingly looking for new ways and means of reducing these burdens while still comply fully with their legal requirements.
