Description

A one day course covering the the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which places significant duties and responsibilities on the ‘responsible person’.  Typically, the responsible person is the freeholder or landlord, but may be a ‘residential management company’ (RMC). However, responsibilities and duties imposed on the responsible person also apply to any other person who, “under a tenancy or contract, has a responsibility for maintenance or repair of the premises, maintenance or repair of anything in or on the premises, or for the safety of the premises”. This can include a wide variety of people, including the Residential Managing Agent (RMA).
