Following the recent fire at Grenfell Tower in London our thoughts are with those affected by this tragic event. We would like to assure all our tenants that we take your safety very seriously. Although we do not own or manage any high-rise tower blocks like Grenfell Tower, we do conduct regular inspections to meet our statutory duty as a landlord. Any maintenance work carried out to your home is checked during and after completion of works, and we only use approved contractors who are tested for health and safety compliance. All materials that are used in your home must comply with current British Safety Standards. We will, however, continue to review any recommendations that come out from this tragic event.
It is important to make sure you know what to do in the event of a fire. The Scottish Fire & Rescue Service can provide you with some really helpful information.
