I have conducted a fire risk assessment for one of my properties, a non-licenseable HMO with 4 bedrooms.
The report recommendations includes the following 2 items:
1. As I provide fire extinguishers in the property, the tenants should be trained on how to use them ! Has anybody else heard of this requirement, how can I satisfy this ?
2. The property has an interlinked fire alarm system with control pannel, according to BS5839 Part 1 or Part 6A. The assessment states that such a system should be tested weekly according to the current fire protection guideline. As this is a guidance only, I could test the system less frequently but then in a case of fire I would be responsible in front of the law as to why I did not comply with the guidance. Again, has any body heard of this requirement, are the other HMO landlords testing their fire alarms weekly ?
I would appreciate if other HMO landlords would share from their experience.
