Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Does anyone know about Fire Risk Assessment? Who needs one, who does them etc.

Any info appreciated.

are you talking about domestic property? Basic idea is to maintain a 'protected escape route'. If you live in a flat, this is everything from your flat front door to the street door PLUS the door into your own flat, which needs to be a fire door.

The onus to have this Fire Risk Assessment completed (and reviewed on a regular basis) lies with the 'landlord' of the building. Costs for this may be passed on to individual flat owners/renters. You are entitled to have access to a copy of this (as an 'interested party')

No fire risk assessment is required for a house containing a single household.

yes ... thankyou ken ... i was looking for someone to do a FRA can you suggest someone?

The house I have part responsibility for had an assessment done by the firm called Fire Safety Assessments Ltd. They do what it says on the tin, indeed. The assessor was a former firefighter, so no doubt had experience of fires where there had been avoidable loss of life.

thankyou bob ... if you don't mind ...what could i expect in terms of cost and do you get some kind of report?

i will send you a private message if you would prefer that.

For an assessment of the common areas of a house containing 4 flats we paid (in 2018) £195+VAT. We received a 30-page report, including photos. Their website now says that their prices start from £145+VAT, but I'm not sure what you get for that. You would need to contact them to check.

that's great thankyou :)
