I’m upgrading a 5-bed student house in Stoke-on-Trent to provide en-suite bathrooms in each room plus a separate visitor toilet.
The electrician says I’ll need a fire alarm system as the house will be 5 separate units. I pointed out to him that the tenants sign a joint contract as a group, and they have shared kitchen and living room facilities, so they are not in individual units.
Normal HMO rules apply (5 tenants or more) and I need a licence from the council which I have already discussed with them, but a fire alarm system has not been mentioned before.
Am I right, or is the electrician?
Thanks in advance for any comments.
