    Fire Safety

    I would like some general infomation about the fire safety regulations in a house with 3 self contained flats. The house was converted 1 year ago but the builder subed the instalation of a fire alarm system which doesn't work. The contractor has disapeared and I am trying to sort out the mess. I am the landlord.

    Have you tried your Local Fire Prevention Officer ? I'm sure they would be more than happy to give out general information and guidance regarding legislation and what they would expect to see in that type of property. They may even be able to inspect it for you but I'm not sure whether they would charge (I suspect they would).

    Naturally they wouldn't be able to carry out any work but at least you would know, for certain, what standards any contractor you get to do it would have to aspire to.

      Trish.. have you thought about getting the alarm repaired? If this is possible, then have the alarm commisioned (if you don't have this done already) and that should cover you, or inform you of any short commings. this should cover your obligations.
