Obstructions in the communal areas

Please ensure that you keep communal areas clear of any items as they can present a number of health, safety and fire hazards and can also invalidate the building insurance policy. This is due to the fact that:

  • Accidents such as trips and falls could occur.
  • In the event of a fire, items left unattended could impede access or may block a fire escape route, therefore making it more difficult for help to be provided by Fire and Rescue teams.

If items are found in communal areas they will be removed as part of the lease agreement for the property. Written warnings will be issued regarding the removal of any items.
