Shop with two flats above and a communal staircase for the flats

My client has just bought this property. The previous landlord didn't appear to be doing weekly testing of the fire alarm. I am struggling to convince my landlord client that we will need to do this. He has claimed that he has been told this isn't necessary. Unfortunately the fire risk assessor did not reference the lack of testing/ onsite docs by the seller.

As a second query - I have been advised that the fire alarm is linked between shop and flat stairwell but the two flats have a separate link between fire and smoke alarms. Is this sufficient? I am conscious if a fire starts in the shop/ stairwell, the flats may not hear the alarm.
