Internal / External Stairs

Recommended Posts


I hope someone on here can help me out with a bit of advice.

I live in a flat above a shop, the stairs to my flat are open to the air, however underneath them is enclosed.  The shop is keeping stock underneath the stairs - is this a fire hazard?

In my mind it is - as if their is a fire in the shop, I then would not be able to get out of my flat via the stairs.  Am I correct in this thinking, if so who do I report them too (anonymously).

Any advice would be appreciated.

Depends if the store is of fire resisting material or not. Your local Fire Service are the enforcers and can advise if you are at risk and take action if required.
