Landlords Alliance – Emergency Euro Elections Statement21:09 PM, 21st May 2019

There is a large House/Hotel in my area, I have not looked at the property yet just seen it on leaflet but I think I could make it into 3 x 2 bed Flats – then rent them out.
What are the implications?
I know there will have to be 4 core 3 phase Wiring coming into the house, then split to 4 different Meter boards and Consumer units.
What is the Best Amperage 60Amp for 2 bed flats.
That also means I have to have 3 pipework systems and at least 3 boilers. For the communal staircase would I need a sprinkler system?
I was thinking of putting in a board in a communal area, smoke detectors in each apartment, at least two in each, and wired up to the individual ring mains. But as I said, I would like it if a smoke alarm was activated in the top flat that an alarm would be sounding in a communal hallway to alert other tenants.
I suppose fire extinguishers on the communal stairs is a must?
Front door entry panel and buzzers in each flat.
WALLS – how thick do they need to be if they are studded? I am sure I read somewhere they have to be 3×2″ (normal) but they have to have 1/2″ Plasterboard or is that just for HMO’s?
What fire protection or sound proofing is required in stud walls?
Any advice would be helpful.
