Under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order, Landlords must keep fire safety facilities in working order. At Direct365, we offer services for fire hazard prevention, keeping premises compliant and safe.
- Fire alarms – alarms can deteriorate by collecting dirt, losing battery life or through general faults, so it’s crucial to get their condition checked on a regular basis
- Fire doors – vital to limit the spread of fire, smoke and toxic fumes, it’s recommended that these are tested every 12 months to assess wear and tear
- Fire risk assessment – understand the real risks of your premises and learn how to minimise them
- Fire extinguishers – these must be maintained and tested to ensure they’re working to legal standards and should be serviced at least once a year
- Emergency lighting – emergency lights need to be tested to British standards so they can be relied upon to lead people to safety

Electrical safety is one of the biggest elements of keeping a property safe. Faulty wiring in fixed or portable appliances can cause damage beyond recovery, from electric shock injuries to building fires.
As the property owner, it’s the Landlord duty to arrange legally compliant checks of the electrics included in the house, apartment or flat. That which you provide is that which you must upkeep.
