Tenant Responsibilities

Tenants in rented properties should be aware of their responsibilities for fire safety. All tenants are “relevant persons” in relation to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. A relevant person is “any person who is or may be lawfully on the premises, and any person in the immediate vicinity of the premises who is at risk from a fire on the premises”.

Tenants should also know the responsibilities of their landlord. See Landlord Responsibilities.
