As an occupant of the space, guardians must make a point to make themselves aware of the fire safety measures in operation. This includes being aware of any fire exits, fire extinguishing equipment, fire alarms, and the specific fire safety procedure of the building, such as assembly points. Wilfully blocking a fire exit, or otherwise negating the effectiveness of the building’s fire safety methods, will be considered gross misconduct – in the event individual blame cannot be determined, all guardians will be held responsible.
If you need to make changes and alter the space you occupy in order to better suit your growing needs, you may do so – however, only with the express written permission from VPS. No direct contact is to be made with the property owners nor any of their associates or affiliates. VPS must be contacted for all client queries.
How it’s monitored
To ensure you’re complying with your responsibilities as a guardian, VPS will conduct monthly checks on the property and its general condition. Our inspectors are trained to be highly courteous, and will clearly announce their presence before entering any living space. Our inspectors will wear identification badges at all times.
If you have any questions or queries, be sure to ask your inspector. Otherwise, you may contact a VPS representative at any time to provide help and assistance. If you’re unsure about something, we would always prefer you contact us first and ensure clarification before taking any action that may result in your licence agreement being revoked.
