Landlord Fire Safety and Compliance

Updated: Sep 8


Landlord Fire Safety


In order to gain a licence, the mandatory conditions are:

  • A valid gas safety certificate, if gas is supplied to the house

  • Electrical appliances and furniture (supplied under the tenancy) must be in safe condition

  • Smoke alarms must be in proper working order

  • The tenant must be supplied with a written statement of the terms of occupation

  • References must be demanded from persons wishing to occupy the house


Private let landlords should be aware that EICR's have now become a legal requirement for all new tenancies in England from July 1st 2020.


All existing tenancies will have to comply with the new legislation on or before April 1st 2021.


For HMO licencing the following need to be met:

  • The house is suitable for the number of occupants (eg size and facilities)

  • The manager of the house - you or an agent - is considered to be ‘fit and proper’, eg no criminal record, or breach of landlord laws or code of practice

  • Send the council an updated gas safety certificate every year

  • Install and maintain smoke alarms

  • Provide safety certificates for all electrical appliances when requested

Each local authority will normally have their own minimum requirements of what they expect from you in relation to licencing.
