This one-day course is designed to help ensure that the home you let mitigates your risks and meets your legal obligation to provide a safe home for your tenants, by focusing on hidden hazards beyond the bricks and mortar of your property.

Our Safer Homes landlord training programme will help ensure your tenants and their visitors don’t suffer detrimental health and safety effects, avoiding the risk of fines or prosecution.

Remember, as a landlord, it is your responsibility to:

  • Provide a safe and healthy environment for your tenants and their visitors
  • Undertake repairs of your property to avoid legal action
  • Look beyond the bricks and mortar and remedy any hidden hazards that could affect the health of your tenants

Together with our team of expert trainers you will look at both your legal obligations and the good practice methods, giving you peace of mind and providing added security for your tenants. The training day includes useful real-world case studies of where things have gone wrong for others and how you can avoid the same mistakes, saving you time, money and worry.
