Homes Act CPD

With numerous regulatory requirements and guidance documents related to providing ventilation in existing homes, it is crucial for both landlords and their contractors to educate themselves. With this in mind, Elta Fans has developed a CPD training course to assist landlords and social housing providers.

Domestic Ventilation Regulations and their Implications –
Guidance for Landlords and their Contractors.

The heavily publicised Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 will affect most landlords and tenants, and therefore it is crucial for both landlords and their contractors to educate themselves on the Building Regulations and guidance documents associated with designing and installing ventilation systems.

For landlords, having a full understanding of the UK’s regulations is critical to assessing whether the existing ventilation strategy in a home is adequate, if tenant lifestyle is a contributing factor to conditions, if the contractors you engage with are suitably qualified, and that products specified and used are compliant with regulations.

For contractors, being able to understand and apply the regulations correctly allows landlords to rely on installers for their advice and support if ventilation issues do arise.

Both landlords and contractors should also have a general awareness of the regulations and guidance given that they are likely to be dealing with cases where a tenant claims their ventilation system is inadequate.

With this in mind, Elta Fans has developed a CPD training course to assist landlords and social housing providers, and those involved in the repair, maintenance and improvements of homes to understand and apply the regulations and guidance around providing ventilation in existing homes. The course aims to give housing providers and their contractors an understanding of their obligations and how to correctly apply these to their properties.
