Legislation & Compliance

As Legislation, Compliance and Health & Safety become more and more prevalent, the inevitability of the Residential Property Management industry becoming formally regulated is not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

Directors and owners within Residential Management and Right to Manage Companies are highly accountable and responsible for their actions and decisions. They must ensure their development and Company meet their statutory and legal obligations.

Having a reliable and suitably qualified agent at BNS proactively looking after one of your major assets offers comfort, a level of insurance and peace of mind. We can take on the responsibility and burden of self-managing your development.

Changes to Fire Door Legislation

The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022

New legislation is coming into force that may impact you.

BNS can help.

As of January 2023 The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 stipulates the frequencies that your fire doors and apartment doors must be inspected. This extends to fire doors both within common areas and doors to domestic areas.

The new legislation will state that common area fire doors within high and medium rise apartment buildings will require examination every three months. It will specify that all doors to apartments must be inspected annually.

Any fire door in any building must have been inspected when a fire risk assessment takes place.

BNS provides comprehensive fire door surveys to ensure you are protected and fully compliant. This will protect you from fire safety issues and potential legal matters, giving you peace of mind.
