RLA trainer Carrie Kus, noted: ‘The horrific loss of life following the Grenfell Tower disaster has left the whole nation in shock and landlords from all tenures are now asking if they are doing enough. The legislation relating to fire safety in the private sector is complex and varies depending on the type of building and how it is leased out.’

‘This course takes this complex area and breaks it down making it easy for the average landlord and managing agent to disseminate what they need to do to keep their tenants and their properties safe from fire,’ she continued.[1]

Landlords should also source our free comprehensive guide to Fire Safety, available in our Guides section.
