The bedroom windows in my tenanted property are not key lockable and my new tenants have requested they install locks drilled and affixed to the windows in respect of child safety.
Whilst I appreciate their request, I am kind of adverse to doing this as my concern is would I be held responsible if they or future tenants were unable to escape from the first floor windows in event of fire/smoke.
I thought adhesive child safety locks may be a way forward but not sure if would work on windows.
I am interested to know your thoughts and also where I stand legally as a landlord.
My ultimate aim is to ensure my tenants are happy during their tenancy.
