Are you compliant when it comes to fire safety?
Freeholders and the directors of residents’ management companies have a duty to make a fire safety risk assessment for common areas of blocks of flats.
The Fire Safety Order (FSO) 2005 became effective in October 2006 replacing over 70 pieces of previous legislation and created clarity in this area. The Order does not apply to the individual flats.
