I am the landlord of a 3 story block of 12 flats. Today it was brought to my attention that the fire alarm has become an issue as a result of someone simply cooking a meal, the flat is let as a holiday rental.
The internal layout of this top floor flat I discovered has changed – moving the bathroom to the old kitchen and vice versa, making the lounge now open plan to the new kitchen. The leaseholder obviously has removed a couple of walls including the private lobby in the flat that was required for fire regulations.
They appear not to have changed the smoke and heat detectors around, so now the alarm sounds frequently upsetting the other leaseholders of the building.
The lease stipulates no internal alterations without the landlords consent.
Where do I stand in relation to this –
a) With the fire regulations.
b) Putting the flat back to its original design.
c) Any compensation?
I would appreciate your thoughts,
