Landlords have had to grapple with an ever changing fire safety landscape in recent years. Those changes have brought with it a renewed focus on residents who may be unable to self-evacuate in the event of a fire, particularly where there has been a change in fire strategy from a stay in place policy to a graduated or ‘one out all out’ policy. The issue leads to a complex web of fire safety, regulatory and tenancy management issues. Coupled with the Government’s recent proposals on a landlord’s obligation to prepare Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPs), the issue is becoming ever more prevalent. This webinar will bring you up to speed on the government’s announced proposals and the legal issues that sit alongside in general needs housing.
