Fire Risk Assessment in a freehold and landlord


Recommended Posts


A question that I cannot find the answer online to.

A friend of mine has a flat (freehold) in a 3 story converted Victorian town house, there are 3 flats in total. 1 is rented out the other 2 are owned. The common area staircase is only on two floors.

My question is 

Will he need a hard wired fire alarm system?


thank you

Only if he wants one. There would however have to be a fire risk assessment of the common areas, which may require the provision of a fire detection and alarm system based upon the fire resistance of the premises after conversion - sometimes these conversions require a mixed system with provision to each flat and a common system.
