Residential Landlord Health and Safety Policy
This Residential Landlord Health and Safety Policy, which reflects the changes made to the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Regulations from the 01 October 2022 (which affects England only), has been written to help make sure that private landlords of residential rented properties fulfil their health and safety responsibilities to their tenants. This Policy has been updated in line with the requirements of the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022, in force from the 23rd January 2023.
Being a landlord means you have a ‘duty of care’ to those who rent from you. This policy sets out the key compliance obligations of a landlord.
The main areas where you will need to ensure compliance are:
- General safety of the premises - how you will maintain it
- Gas safety
- Electrical safety
- Fire safety
