Fire Risk Assessment

10 Jun 2020 | 1 comment

Hi

Upon doing the recent Rent Smart Wales CPD regarding Fire Risk Assessment, it mentions about fire risk assessment.

As a landlord of a 2 bed house with 1 tenant, what do I need to do (other than the usual Smoke Alarms, check electrical appliances and Gas Safety) in terms of Fire Risk Assessment in terms of any formal documented procedures, is there anything I need to do?

Thanks

    No, there is nothing more needed as long as you have the smoke alarms and perhaps ensure the kitchen door is “close fitting” (but it won’t have to be a fire door, just well fitted and closes properly).

    If the property ever becomes an HMO (more than 2 people not all related to one another) the position may be slightly different (although a 2 bed house with 3 people for example wouldn’t be excessive in it’s requirements) so contact us again then.
