Important duties of an HMO manager
Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) need to be properly managed to ensure that landlords meet their obligations and tenants have safe, clean homes. At T1property we provide the best HMO management Portsmouth landlords could hope for. Our team are highly experienced and always deliver an excellent level of service.
One of the foundations of good HMO management is ensuring the manager provides the right information for tenants. Each occupant should know who is managing the property and have their contact details so they can get in touch if there are any problems. It is the duty of the manager to provide this information and keep it up to date.
On top of sharing information the HMO manager also has a responsibility to take safety measures within the property. They should ensure there are suitable means of escape for in the event of a fire and keep these routes free from obstacles and obstructions. The route should be well maintained and safe.
Fire fighting equipment and safety systems should also be provided where it is necessary. Again all of these should be properly maintained so that occupants are warned by alarms if there is a fire and are able to attempt to tackle it if possible.
The HMO manager must also conduct checks to ensure the structure of the HMO is safe and that the design does not present risks. If an injury occurs that is the result of negligence, poor design, or lack of upkeep the manager could be liable.
At T1property we understand the duties of HMO managers and ensure we satisfy them when we are called on to manage a property. Regardless of the size of the property or the design we can ensure that all obligations are met.
Our services are very highly regarded and we always work to deliver the maximum value. That is why we have become the number one for HMO management Portsmouth landlords can call on. If you would like support or to put your property into professional hands, please contact us.
