Fire Risk Assessment Compliance Non- HMI

Guest Dee

Recommended Posts

Good morning,can anyone help please.I have a 2 bed flat with 2 tenants, it's a private rental in a converted house.Downstairs is another private rental with 2 tenants .

I had a fire risk assessment of the hallway as a friend of mine said I needed to ensure it was safe ,and now have many works that need to be carried out .Including a fire alarm system in the hallway .I haven't got any issues with this ,but being a small set up it says online that these systems as well as monthly checks they also need weekly checks and recording of this .

Is this system necessary for communal hallways in non HMO dwellings ?

I'm so confused as the maintenance of this seems a lot.

They also mention about getting a company to check compartmentation as well?

Fire doors onto hallway( this seems pretty standard though .


Having fire extinguishers in hallway ( I thought people were meant to try and get out asap ?) 

Im just confused as neither property is a HMO but  to me it looks like this is the way it is being treated ?

Any advice please?


Many thanks?
