Outside the house

Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures. Good window locks and strong deadlocks can make a big difference.

Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. Here are a few tips

  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don’t leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property
  • trim high hedges
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immoveable object inside a locked shed or garage
  • Install good outside lighting

Inside the house

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you’re just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures – a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
  • Install ring.com doorbell or CCTV
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault

Control access with doors you can trust

Your door is the gateway to your home.

As such, you want it to be as solid and protective as can be. Which means it being strong enough to withstand even the most determined burglar.

Whether you live in a flat or a house, your front door will always tell a thief the levels of security surrounding your home. If it looks really secure and burglar-resistant, then they’ll think twice about trying to gain entry.

A locksmith belonging to the Master Locksmiths Association will check to see if your door is secure and made of solid timber or a robust composite. The locksmith can also reinforce the frame and check if the locks and hinges are British Standard approved.

Fire Safety Advice for Landlords

Fire Safety Advice for Landlords

FIRE SAFETY ADVICE FOR LANDLORDS, MANAGING AGENTS, PRIVATE DWELLINGS, BLOCKS OF FLATS AND OWNERS OF HOUSES IN MULTIPLE OCCUPATION AND SOCIAL HOUSING.

Just like employers, landlords have certain legal obligations when it comes to fire safety and protection of their properties and the safety of people who reside in their premises. However, it is not as simple as ensuring there is a couple of fire extinguishers to hand – fire safety largely depends on the potential risks and the different types of buildings can cause confusion.

For example, a building that is used for a single tenancy will differ to one which is shared across commercial and residential lettings. Legislation requires that landlords carry out fire risk assessments in all areas of their properties. This process will identify any fire hazards and who is at risk and decide if anything needs to be done to remove or reduce that risk.

The advice given in this section is intended to guide and advise Landlords, managing agents and owners of the following types of properties on best practice as well as your legal responsibilities under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (2005), this is commonly known as the Fire Safety Order (FSO).
