As a landlord, we have an obligation to do everything we can to keep our customers safe.  As part of this, we are currently placing an increased focus on fire safety.  This includes making sure that all closes, shared internal areas, landings and stairwells are kept free of all items and personal possessions.

Our Housing Officers have now recommenced close inspections and, if they find any items in closes or communal areas, they will knock on customers' doors and ask for these to be removed.  If items remain after you have been asked to remove them, we may remove them ourselves and charge you for the cost of their removal.  In the event that an item poses a serious hazard or fire risk, we may remove it immediately.  

You can help to keep everyone safe by making sure that nothing is left in your close or communal area at any time.  If you have any questions about this, please contact your Housing Officer.
