HMO Landlord Health & Safety Policy
This HMO Landlord Health & Safety Policy, which reflects the changes made to the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Regulations from the 01 October 2022 (which affects England only), is designed to help owners of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) fulfil their health and safety responsibilities towards their tenants. This policy is suitable whether the property is owned by the landlord as an individual or by a company. This Policy has been updated in line with the requirements of the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022, in force from the 23rd January 2023.
Whether or not the HMO is licensed by the local authority, landlords have certain duties towards tenants. This policy template sets out the key compliance obligations of a HMO landlord.
The main areas where landlords need to ensure compliance are:
- General safety of the premises
- Gas safety
- Electrical safety
- Fire safety
An alternative template is available for landlords of non-HMO properties. Both templates are duplicated in the Health & Safety folder.
