Staying Fit During Lockdown

Staying Fit During Lockdown!

Keeping our bodies and minds healthy during lockdown is paramount. No doubt a few us have gained one or two pounds from being couch potatoes.

We are told to do exercise but that can be difficult when GYMs are closed. The weather is also not encouraging to do daily sprints around our neighbourhoods, hence creating your own fitness regime in the comfort the comfort of your own home is something everyone should consider.

Everyone has their own ideas about staying fit, some people choose to do yoga whilst others prefer strenuous workouts using gym equipment. My preferred method is doing kick-boxing whilst watching dvds of my favourite workout masters.

The NHS says exercise reduces your risk of major illness, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and lowers your risk of early death by up to 30 per cent. 

Treat your body like a Temple, treat it with love, care and respect!

Landlord Resposibilities Fact Checking.

LANDLORDS OBLIGATION FACT CHECKING

LANDLORDS OBLIGATIONS FACT CHECKING.

ANNUAL GAS SAFETY CHECK

I am the voice for tenants that are not in the know.

Due to an incident that happened to me last year with the installation of my own cooker, I decided to make some enquiries as there was mixed information and I needed to get the facts right.

So here is what I know:

If a cooker is installed by the tenant it is the resposibility for the repairs and maintenance by the tenant but the annual Gas Safety checks are the responsibility of the landlord.

Below is an email to confirm this and I have redacted part of the senders information for privacy purposes.

FIRE ALARMS INSPECTIONS

I also asked the question in an online form how often do fire alarms have to be checked and the Government Agency told be to look on their link as follows where it does not mention the frequency of the alarm checks by a regualated electrician or anything about annual checks.

There is no mention how often a fire alarm has to be checked by an regulated electrician.

From I have read on other sites it is the tenant’s resposibility to check the arms are working once a month.

Here is the screenshot of the Fire Reguations from the link above:

FINAL THOUGHTS

For the gas engineer to say there is no need for carbon monoxide alarms to be fitted they are wrong, every rented property has to have a carbon monoxide alarm.

For the annual fire inspection done by a regulated electrical engineer, there is no data to support this and it is the responsibility of the tenant to make sure their alarms are working once a month.

If an electrician or landlord tells you otherwise they are wrong and the electrician is making money off the back of the word “legislation” is basically hoodwinking the landlord who may have a few properties.

TRUSTING THE TENANT

The only thing I can say is that the majority of people do have common sense and do test their alarms and it is down to the landlord to decide can he/she trust the tenant enough to do the fire alarm test once a month…..

The can of smoke the electrician used to test the alarms on my property can be purchased below:
