More regulations on way for HMOs

Posted: 26/3/2021
The Home Office has confirmed that both landlords and ‘responsible persons’ in charge of HMOs will face unlimited fines under new fire safety measures revealed recently.

Its spokesperson stated that this would include property managers and agents nominated as ‘responsible persons’.

All these players will face the unlimited fines if they are caught obstructing or impersonating a fire inspector as well as to those who breach regulations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 legislation, the new Home Office measures propose.

These follow a consultation prompted by the Grenfell Tower fire. The Home Office measures that have followed the consultation will now be included in the Building Safety Bill.
