Kitchen under communal stairs

Hi, I live in a flat in a building that has 2 floors and some living space in the attic. This is a listed building, built circa 1900

The studio flat on the ground floor has its kitchen under the mid landing of the communal staircase for the residents on the second floor.

I was wondering about the fire safety regulations of such a design when the building was converted in 2100

Difficult to say without seeing it or the design fire strategy that should have been produced if it's a legal conversion. It doesn't sound right - you should ask for the Fire Risk Assessment - from October you have legal rights to receive far more detailed information than ever before on the property.

If you are really worried the fire service are the enforcers you could ask them to check.
