Fire Door in unlicensed HMO

Recommended Posts

Guest RAHUL

Hi,

I have recently purchased a 4 bed student property and am currently doing some refurbishment work . I would prefer to let it to a group of student ( single AST) , and in that case I believe it many not need firedoor as its low risk , but if I rent it room by room (multiple AST) then it may need to comply with FSO. It already has hardwired smoke detector on both floors.

 

I have attached the floor plan.

I wanted to know, which doors should be fire doors and will they need closer . Door 1 is the main entrance and door8 opens in Garden,  I was planning to remove door 3 and 6 completely .

You are correct that a shared house currently has less stringent requirements that a HMO (licensed or otherwise, but note the definition changes in October).

This guide applies: https://www.rla.org.uk/docs/LACORSFSguideApril62009.PDF

You appear to have the stairs going into a lounge as part of escape, this could cause issues (or should!).
