All doors removed In rented property


Recommended Posts

Hi,  I have just been to a friend's house . She just started renting it and has removed all the internal doors. The house is about 12 years old. I said that it must be a fire risk but she said her landlord said it was fine.  Also,  she has no co detector anywhere but does have 2 smoke alarms.  Am I wrong? Shouldn't there be a co detector and can't doors help prevent the spread of fire?

Without knowing a lot more about the situation it is impossible to give definitive answer, I would think the means of escape from fire (MoE) was designed, taking into account the doors in place, by removing them, it is going to worsen the MoE, even too a dangerous condition.

As it is a rented premises then it is subject to The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 which require the landlord to provide smoke and CO detectors.
