Occupiers Liability

As a landlord you must ensure that all of your property is safe and in no way poses a danger to anyone entering the premises.  You must ensure that all glass doors have safety glass fitted, that the garden poses no danger to anyone, i.e. an old iron fence may cut a childís hand, the guttering may not be held up properly or the kitchen cupboard door that you have been meaning to fix may fall of itís hinges and injure another party.  You have a duty of care to ensure that your property poses no danger to your tenant, a visitor or even someone trespassing on your property.  Check your property thoroughly to ensure that there are no hidden dangers.  What may be seen as an everyday inconvenience to you and something that you will get around to fixing one day can end up as major incident to someone else and cost you a fortune.
