Fire Safety For Landlords

Last updated  19 March 2018

Each year there are over 50,000 fires in dwellings in the UK. These result in around 300 hundred fatalities and several thousand serious injuries. Those living in private rented accommodation are statistically seven times more likely to have a fire compared to an owner occupier.

This booklet has been produced to give both landlords and their tenant’s advice on relevant fire safety legislation, guidance and risk assessment to provide a safe and healthy living environment.

This dual purpose document gives guidance which landlords can use to educate their tenants and for tenants to understand their landlords role.
