Commercial Landlord Responsibilities

As a Landlord of Commercial premises there are several laws in place which are there to ensure that commercial properties are safe places for people to work.

icon-fire

Fire Safety

 

In most cases the responsibility will fall on the tenant to take care of fire safety but this is dependent on the wording in the lease.
Make sure the lease clearly defines who is responsible for all aspects of fire safety.

Fixtures and Fittings

 

All fixtures and fittings need to be properly installed and safe to use. Some fittings, particularly electrical may require a safety certificate and you should make sure that the lease states whether you or your tenant are responsible for this.

Asbestos

 

Your lease should set out the terms of the maintenance and repair obligations. The person responsible for maintenance and repair will also be responsible for asbestos. If this is not set out in your lease, the responsibility may automatically fall back on you as Landlord/Owner of the property.

In the event that Asbestos is found on the premises, you will need to include this in any risk assessments as the penalties for not managing the risk of asbestos are severe.

Gas & Electricity

 

The Landlord’s responsibility is usually related to the general care of the wiring system and you should carry out an electrical safety check on a regular basis and keep the certificate if this is the case. The responsibility for the electrical appliances is usually spilt between the landlord and tenant/leaseholder and this will be set out in the lease.

In respect of gas appliances, most of the responsibility is with the tenant. Any gas appliances supplied by you , the landlord, will need to be safety-checked. Again this will need to be defined in the lease.

Make sure you are Insuring your property for the correct rebuild cost so you are not penalised for underinsurance in the event of a claim
