Hi, I have a lease on a flat which is in a converted house. In total there are 3 self contained flats, although 2 share a common entrance/communal area. The landlord (freeholder) wishes to install a hard wired smoke alarm and emergency lighting. Given that the conversion to flats was done prior to 1991, I do not believe there is a statutory requirement to install this extra equipment. The individual dwellings are each fitted with battery powered smoke alarms. Many thanks for your assistance, and hopefully, clarification!
