Latest Post: CDM: CDM requirements on Landlords and Tenants carrying out DIY works by Helen Fennemore Jones on 18 August

Hello there A council acts as a Landlord by owning a domestic property which is let out using Assured Short Hold Tenancy Agreements. I understand that if we were to instruct any works to contractors, we would be the client and CDM Regs would apply, however: a) If the resident was to carry out DIY works within the property, would CDM apply? b) If it does, how would this work under the regs? c) If the resident asks a contractor to carry out the works, would they become the Client and Regs would then apply? d) What responsibilities would the Landlord have to monitor? Any help would be appreciated!
