Fire risk assessment for converted barn

Guest PeterKn

Recommended Posts

Guest PeterKn

I live in a converted barn in a group of 6 with a limited amount of shared land (driveway and gardens) and equipment (sewage treatment plant, boundary fencing, cattle grid, driveway lighting). We have formed a private limited company as the legal mechanism to manage our affairs which essentially are the upkeep of the above mentioned. We have no employees (but we do of course use people to maintain our sewage treatment plant and do minor maintenance tasks as necessary) and conduct no business. We consider our fire risk as very low but are concerned to know if we should be complying with any legislation (training, fire equipment, risk analysis etc.) . Can you please give us any guidance S to where we should be looking for clarification.

Thank you.

It all depends if the barn (Dwelling House) can be classed as flats or a House in Multiple Occupation which is not easy to determine. The company you have created could be classed a management company which most multi occupied premises have. Also do you have private accommodation and common areas.
