I have a fire escape to the side of my leased commercial property, it’s 1 storey high and was installed for the sole purpose of being a fire escape


new commercial tenant moved in next door and is either parking their car under the escape or  using it to dump rubbish! 

I am of course concerned that should the be a fire the car or rubbish would catch fire and block the fire escape as flames would come of through the steps and landing area 


is there a specific law or code that I can use to get them to stop, I have contacted the management company but they are not doing anything about it

If the tenant and managers aren't doing anything, you should inform the business fire safety department of your fire & rescue service.


The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

Emergency routes and exits

14.—(1) Where necessary in order to safeguard the safety of relevant persons, the responsible person must ensure that routes to emergency exits from premises and the exits themselves are kept clear at all times.
