- Tuesday 23rd February 2021
- At 7.30pm on the legalities of landlords having works done in their rental properties including the Construction Design & Management Regulations 2015.
This is a recorded webinar that I watched last month on the topic of the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 and will be hosted and introduced to us by Tessa as a bonus webinar. It was really interesting I promise – and not a topic we have covered previously.
Concentrating on potential issues with refurbishments & landlords legal responsibilities and hosted by Dave Princep – Independent Housing Consultant.
Dave said the below:
Anyone who has works carried out at a property is a “client” and has legal duties under the regulations. Landlord and property agents are classed as “commercial clients” and must comply with certain obligations, which will be ongoing, whereas homeowners in occupation can pass on many of their duties to a contractor or designer/architect.
What should landlords and agents do to ensure compliance with the CDM?
About This Webinar
The CDM regulations aim to improve the health and safety and welfare provisions when any construction-related works are carried out including minor repair and maintenance and are not only limited to major works such as new build, demolition, refurbishment, extensions or conversions. Landlord and property agents failing to take care in commissioning work can create serious safety issues for which they may be liable, even if the contractor is at fault.
