What is a fire risk assessment?

Landlords have a legal duty to ensure that their rented property is safe from fire. A fire risk assessment is evidence that you have fulfilled your responsibilities.

Without one, you could be open to claims if there was a fire. What’s more, landlords of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) are legally obliged to carry out fire risk assessments.

By conducting a fire risk assessment of your private or social rental accommodation you will be able to determine what the chance is of a fire starting, and any dangers to those in the immediate vicinity.

The assessment will be a methodical look at the premises, the activities carried out there and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.

The aims of the fire risk assessment are unanimous:

  1. Identify any fire hazards
  2. Reduce the risk of those hazards causing harm to as low as reasonably practicable
  3. Decide what physical fire precautions and management arrangements are necessary to ensure the safety of people in the premises if a fire does start.
