Health & safety

The Local Authority Environmental Health Department is responsible for the majority of retail and commercial units.

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) can be contacted for units that fall under the category of factories or those outside of the Local Authority remit.

We will act, at all times, fairly and with honesty. However, get independent advice if you need it and in certain situations we may recommend it.

Independent advice is available from a number of different sources including Chartered Surveyors, Solicitors, Local Authorities, Training and Enterprise Councils.

Please see our Useful Links page for details of official organisations which offer advice on property matters. They will also have information about practices in your area.
