Sectors we work in


Serving the Built to Rent (BTR) and Private Rental Services (PRS), we fully understand the challenges facing the residential property sector whether that be for Block and Estate Managers, Directors of Resident Management Companies or any other ‘responsible person’. The changes in legislation move at pace so keeping up to date with your compliance and duty of care responsibilities isn’t easy. That’s why our team of Assessors are well placed to help you manage these actions carefully and swiftly, making sure that you can demonstrate your compliance through clear evidence based actions.

Our Assessors are extremely experienced and competent in serving public sector clients. Having accumulated many years practical ‘assessment time’ under our belts we understand how public organisations operate and the level and extent of their requirements. Our group has a Primary Authority Partnership with Tyne and Wear FRS which is an additional ‘sounding board’ for specific advice giving our clients an added layer of comfort and reassurance.
Under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO) 2005 the duty holder is responsible for ensuring there is an up to date fire risk assessment on the internal common areas of the building for which they have control. This includes Retirement and Care Homes. We are experienced at providing Fire Risk Assessments for this type of environment. Intrinsic to this is a Health & Safety Assessment of the external areas and grounds as this can often be a serious hazard area.

We are also able to provide Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEP) specifically for vulnerable residents


Osterna Assessors have been working within the commercial property world for many years providing ‘peace of mind’ and reassurance to clients who require sound advice across their property portfolio whether it be offices, shops or larger scale retail outlets.


We recognise that the risk to life isn’t just centred on private residential blocks of flats but extends across a far wider spectrum including purpose built student accommodation. This means the same rules and obligations apply so our Assessors are fully aware of their obligations in serving this sector ensuring clients and their customers are safe. We have also completed Fire Risk Assessments on schools.
