    Managing Agent prosecuted for not implementing Fire Risk Assessment

    I hope it is okay to share this article here.

    A Managing Agent was recently fined £20,000 and ordered to pay £10,000 costs by Westminster Magistrates Court for not implementing the Fire Risk Assessment.

    Clearly, the Managing Agent has not adhered to the RICS Code of Practice - Property Managers Association?
    Is that a punishable offence? Or will the Managing Agent just receive a slap on the wrist?

    Hopefully, the lesson has been learned, and the Managing Agent is now being very thorough and complying with Fire Risk Assessments.
    Let’s hope that other Managing Agents have learned a valuable lesson from this, too!
    A resident unable to reach an emergency escape route during a fire was found standing on a third-floor windowsill and had to be rescued by firefighters. Management company Harper Stone Properties Ltd from East Sussex has been fined after pleading guilty to a series of fire safety failings following the 2016 blaze at the block of flats on Green Lanes in Palmers Green, London.

    Yet, Courts have yet to prosecute those responsible for the social housing cleansing of Grenfell Tower.

      The Grenfell Tower Fire was June 2017.
      The incident in the link I posted was in August 2016

            Somebody has acted negligently. Whether that is just one person, or several, the truth needs to be uncovered and the guilty party/parties punished accordingly.
