    If the property is a regular house occupied by a family or couple only no, a fire risk assessment is not necessary but the log burner must be safe on supply. Therefore you should have it checked before occupation which is a similar check to a gas safety.

    Also, don’t forget you must install a carbon monoxide alarm in the room where the log burner is located (in addition to smoke alarms on each storey).
