Can anyone please advise on the correct Fire Alarm System for the following.

4 x storey building [including basement]-Converting from old post office into 4 No. self contained flats

with full fire separation, all to current building regulations. 

Flat 4 /2nd floor self contained -Accessed by communal staircase, via communal staircase to 2nd floor

Flat 3.1st floor self contained -Accessed by main property door, via communal staircase to 1st floor.

Flat 2/ground floor & basement [duplex] self contained-Accessed from shared main property door access [own staircase within flat]

Flat 1/ground floor & basement [duplex] self contained -Own Access / own staircase within flat.

Although all 4 flats are self contained ,All these flat are to be let/licenced with local authority approval. The L.A. require an alarm system which complies with HMO regulations, although they say they cannot advise what Grade or Category this F.A. system should be.

I have looked at A guide to BS5839-6:2013/Building Regs Part B,  but am finding it rather confusing + I have received differing advice from F.A. approved providers.

Would be most obliged if someone could offer advice or point me in another direction for advice.


Thank you in advance.
