Pin Point Issue 12 - 15th December 2020
Are your properties fire safe for Christmas?
It's nearly Christmas and we're all in need of some cheer, especially this year. Your tenants may be going all out on their Christmas lights and decorations, getting ready to enjoy the festive period in their home.
Why should I worry?
Fire is devastating for those directly affected in their home, but as a landlord a fire can be costly; and you could face enforcement action if you haven't complied with the necessary regulations that apply to landlords of privately rented property.
Where can I find information?
Useful government guidance can be found here. The Fire Service have also provided a Fire Safety advice for landlords guide.
