Any furniture and equipment supplied by the landlord should be of reasonable quality and suitable for the purpose it’s provided for. It does not need to be new but it should work and not be dangerous. All upholstered furniture provided by the landlord (for example, sofas, armchairs, mattresses, head boards and cushions) should be fire-resistant. Any new or replacement upholstered furniture must have a symbol on the label to show that it meets fire safety standards. Landlords should replace any furniture that does not meet fire safety standards or seems in any way unsafe.
