fire escape doors between Victorian terraces

Guest Alison

Recommended Posts

I have a 3 storey Victorian terrace in Rhyl which has an old fire escape through to next doors property which is borded up.
My neighbour has advised me that his kids have been trying to get through and they have broken the bording a little.
I want to know whether I am OK to brick it up and plaster it over now with the advent of smoke alarms etc.
Thank you

Depends if the boarding up was done legitimately with Building Control approval, if so brick it up! If unsure ask your Local Authority Building Control office for advise first.

Exits through other premises aren't favoured these days so where other precautions can remove the need for them to be retained they are removed. Also if there isn't a legal easement to allow legal travel from one property to another it can be bricked up in any case.
