Safety of furniture

Any furniture and equipment supplied by your 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 your landlord (for example, sofas, armchairs, mattresses, head boards and cushions) must be fire-resistant and have a symbol on the label to show that it meets fire safety standards.

Ask your landlord to replace any new furniture does not meet fire safety standards or seems in any way unsafe.
