Landlord Safety Cerificate
Landlord Safety Certificates issues all kinds of safety certificates to owners of rented properties in London and surrounding areas.
As a landlord, you are required by law to ensure that your property’s gas and electrical equipment is safe to use. You are also obliged to ensure that your property is free of fire hazards and that measures are in place to protect your tenants in the event that a fire does break out.
Tests should be done at regular intervals to ensure that your property meets all the safety requirements.
Responsibilites of a Landlord
If you fail to maintain the safety of the equipment in your property you could be putting the lives of your tenants at risk and you may incur a substantial fine and/or a custodial sentence.
Your legal duties apply to a wide range of accommodation occupied under a lease or licence, including (but not limited to):
- Residential premises provided for rent by local authorities, housing associations, private sector landlords, co-operatives, hostels.
- Rooms, let in bed-sit accommodation, private households, bed and breakfast accommodation and hotels.
- Rented holiday accommodation such as chalets, cottages, flats, caravans and narrow boats on inland waterways.
