Properties can be let Furnished or Unfurnished.
Most properties are let unfurnished, however, all soft furnishings supplied with a property must comply with the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.
This states that all upholstered furniture or furnishings must meet the Fire and Safety Regulations. This includes three piece suites, sofas and arm chairs, scatter cushions, seat pads and bean bags, loose covers on upholstered furniture, convertible sofa beds and futons, and conservatory furniture, and garden furniture which is suitable for indoor use.
These regulations do not apply to antique furniture or furniture made before 1950, as well as items such as bed covers including duvets, linens and pillowcases, mattress protectors, curtains, carpets or sleeping bags.
Please note:- Most furniture manufactured by reputable suppliers after March 1990 should comply with the Regulations and will be labelled accordingly.
