Now is the time to get your rental houses in order and sort out all those things that you don’t normally have time to do. One of those things on your list should be ensuring you are meeting your legal requirements with regards to fire doors. Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the landlord has a legal responsibility to keep their property and the tenants that live within it safe. As such, they must ensure that fire doors are properly specified, installed and maintained so that occupants are protected.
