    This depends on multiple factors. The answer can be found in the LACORS fire safety guidance or contact us with more detail about the property and occupants.
    As a very brief general guide:
    • house let to a family – not normally
    • converted flats with shared hall – yes
    • house with 3 or more unrelated sharers – probably but depends on property a little (but I would probably want to have it to be safe)
