Blind Safety Regulations
Just wanted to share some brief information with Landlords and Tenants about some new regulations that have come into force.
New regulations now in force require that all operating cords that form a loop must be made child safe. According to Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (www.rospa.com) 29 children have been strangled by blind cords in recent years. Blinds in all properties should now be child safe.
New blinds will be either safe by design, have in built safety systems or be supplied with separate safety systems.
At Sears Property Services we are very proud to deliver
attentive and trustworthy services to all of our customers. If you are a
landlord looking to lease a commercial property then legislation requires that
you obtain a Schedule of Condition. This report is of supreme importance and
performs a crucial function should any disputes over property condition arise
when a lease reaches its point of finality. We are leading providers of
inventories London landlords can trust in.
The reality is that damage sometimes occurs, repairs are
required and disputes can ensue.
If you are a property investor leasing a commercial property it is essential that you take every step to ensure protection for both yourself and your tenant and to save yourself any unnecessary expense in the future. Sometimes disputes can arise regarding the condition of a property when a lease reaches its point of termination and it is for this reason you need a schedule of condition. It is absolutely crucial for all parties that you receive a professional, impartial and independent report for the purposes of tenancy dispute resolution.
