Fire safety advice for landlords, managing agents and owners of houses in multiple occupation and other social housing

Fire safety within the home is an extremely important issue, especially in mixed use premises and where unrelated occupiers, who live independently from one another, share common areas of the same building. This area of law is covered by both the Housing Act 2004 and for the common areas, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Kent Fire and Rescue would encourage all those with an interest in these types of premises to read the Local Authorities Coordinators of Regulatory Services ( LACORS) guidance linked below to ensure they are aware of their responsibilities to carry out a fire risk assessment, and make sure their property has adequate and appropriate fire safety measures in place.
