Fire risk assessment
Asking about fire risk assessments
Ask your landlord when the last Fire Risk Assessment was held and how you can see it for yourself.
Asking who the Responsible Person is
Every block requires a Responsible Person to be in charge of fire safety. Ask your landlord who it is for your building.
Notifying the Fire and Rescue service about breaches in fire safety
If your landlord is breaching fire safety regulations, you can contact your local Fire Service.
