    Right to access leasehold property on grounds of fire safety

    OK guys, first time posting on this forum, so please be gentle with me

    As a freeholder, I have a number of leasehold properties that I am concerned that do not meet the fire safety requirements, and therefore potentially a risk to the neighbouring properties.

    What pieces of legislation can I quote to my leaseholders to show that I have a right to gain entry to at least inspect the inside of the property? The Regulatory Reform Order only gives me rights to the communal areas. The Housing Act (as far as I understand it) does help to get me access, but not in my situation where I only have a hunch that there is a problem in the flat

    What fire safety requirements that apply to you as FH?

    Are these requirements specified in the lease?
    Are you thinking about structural things (like removal of kitchen doors and creation of open plan spaces - which would have other implications under the lease)

    or what?

    Your lease will give you right to inspect anyway probably. Read it.
