Premises, or buildings in general comprising several or multiple accommodation units, can pose an increased risk from fire to the occupants, particularly if those premises are poorly designed, managed or maintained. The legal situation in England and Wales is that the common areas of premises, (corridors, staircases and any areas used by persons from more than one accommodation unit), are subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO). This means that the ‘responsible person’ is statutorily required to complete a fire risk assessment, along with meeting the associated various fire safety duties. The requirements imposed on anyone responsible for the management of an HMO can be confusing as they may be subject to both The Housing Act 2004 and the FSO. Most HMOs will require a licence.
