When it comes to a tenant’s safety, you cannot afford to cut corners and for two obvious reasons. Firstly, your negligence could potentially result in a serious accident, or worst case scenario, a fatality. Secondly, you could end up in prison with a hefty fine. One would assume this to be a motivation for landlords to ensure their properties are safe to inhabit(live in), but it is estimated that a third of rented homes in the UK (in some shape or form) are unsafe to live in. And that’s just the ones we know about! The reality is probably more like half!
