Delay until FRA remedies are carried out


Recommended Posts

The freehold co for the building I live in, a house converted into 5 flats on 5 Stories (basement- 3rd floors),  has a FRA carried out every 2-3 years, which always requires fire doors to flat entrances, a fire alarm and smoke detectors to be fitted. No such works have ever been carried out. The freehold co states that, in old buildings, by law, they have 5 years after the date of the FRA to implement the works. Of course, every 2-3 years, they have another FRA and the 5 years starts to run from then ... and so on. Could you please confirm if this is a loophole they can rely on and what does the law state about the implementation  of works required in the FRA? The last assessment stated the target completion date was 12 weeks and we’re now 18 months past that.

No, they are making it up as they go along and I would suggest you put this information to your local Fire & Rescue Service's Protection/Technical Fire Safety department (they all have different names for what used to be the Fire Prevention Department these days!) who would be very interested and no doubt follow this up for you.
