Ready for the big changes coming this year? Ensuring tenants’ safety in their homes is a landlords’ number one priority. This session will explain what you need to know and do.

We’re going to see some big changes this year.

Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms are going to become mandatory, while electrical safety inspections are being adjusted.

The Fire Safety Act, which was made law in April, is likely to come into force early in the new year, extending the reach of the FFO and increasing the number and type of buildings in scope.

    And we must prepare for the imminent Building Safety Bill, part of which will mean planning the safety case for all buildings over 18 meters

    Additionally, the new consumer regulatory regime and tenant satisfaction measures will be introduced. New measures will focus on compliance with the ‘big 6’ health and safety obligations, including overall tenant satisfaction with the health and safety of their home. Gearing up to ensure that you have the right measures in place across all areas of compliance will be essential.

    The challenge of managing health and safety, and the risks involved, constantly changes, and evolves. For example, with more of us working from home (including our tenants), the risk of fire and electrical incidents has increased.

    We all know that ensuring tenants are safe in their homes is a social landlord’s top priority so attending this session should be top of your list too.

    This event will help you prepare for what’s coming, while providing information, good practice, and guidance on existing regulatory and statutory requirements, and covering key landlord safety compliance on gas, asbestos management, water hygiene, electrical safety, lifts, and fire.
