The National Landlord's Association Visit

On Wednesday 14th September, 'Team Maher Ross' were delighted to attend the National Landlords' Association Regional Presentation, held at the Riverside Centre, Newport.

The focus on the evening was 'Health and Safety' and much of the evening was domniated by Fire Safety - having been highlighted recently in Ventnor where an Island Landlady was fined £80,000 plus significant Court costs for not having the correct procedures in place.

Graham Jolliffe, Director of Maher Ross said "whilst responsible landlords and agents take their Duty of Care for their tenants very seriously and cover all of the bases; those that are less responsible are leaving themselves open to litigation and even criminal prosecution".

Steve Winter of Wight Fire and Security gave a fast-paced and highly informative presentation on the Fire Safety Standards expected in Residential Lettings accommodation and HMO's.

Richard Price, Director of the National Landlord's Association and often described as the "NLA's guru of Health and Safety" (also a good friend to the Maher Ross Team) ran through the safety standards now expected in rental properties and held an informative question and answer session afterwards. 

Island Landlords are welcome to give Graham Jolliffe or Paul Brewster a call at Maher Ross on 01983 563000 if you need any further information on the Health and Safety Standards required in your rental property.
