A landlord has been sentenced after pleading guilty to three offences under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 when it was found that a tragic house fire in 2019, which lead to the death of a 17 year old girl in a house which had been converted to a five-bedroom House in Multiple Occupation (HMO), could have been avoided.
An investigation after the fire found the property lacked even basic fire safety measures and while Landlords with managed properties are aware of the importance for fire risk assessments on their properties, Landlords with let properties that are not managed open themselves to huge potential risks, especially if they are HMO’s.
Yianni Aresti, Partner and Lettings Director at David Astburys Estate Agents said; “This tragic accident really highlights the potential lifechanging risks that Landlords expose themselves to when they don’t have their properties managed by an experienced and reliable agent. We focus on ensuring all our managed properties are fully compliant to ensure the safety of all our tenants and clients first.”
If you are a Landlord are concerned that your property isn’t fully compliant and want some advice, reach out to the Property Management team at David Astburys Estate Agents in Crouch End on 020 3000 6787.
