RICS has published what they are calling a ‘clear and impartial fire safety guide’ that highlights the responsibilities of both landlords and tenants in keeping properties safe – regardless of the type of home they live in.
This guide is available on their website here and is well worth checking out.
Some of the main issues addressed in the guide are as follows:
- Common causes of fires
- Forward planning and fire escape basics
- Owner-occupied property
- Rented or shared accommodation
