Who needs a Fire Risk survey?

For residential properties, it is the landlords responsibility to provide a fire risk assessment for the communal areas only on any block of flats. This includes a house that has been converted into two or more flats. While it is just on the communal areas, the assessment must also include the front doors of the individual flats. Within the commercial sector, anyone with control of the premises holds the responsibility for providing a fire risk assessment. This can be an employer, the property owner, the landlord or even the occupier. If the property has 5 or more employees, you are required to keep a written fire risk assessment at all times. The commercial sector includes workplaces, commercial properties, premises members of the public have access to and the common areas to any multi occupied residential buildings

If you share a commercial premises, the common or shared areas are the responsibility of the landlord, freeholder or agents to provide the fire risk assessment. While the responsibility may be shared for the premises in general, you will need to liaise to arrange the appointment of your fire risk survey for the safety of the people on the premises.

What does the Fire Risk Assessment involve?

The Fire Risk Assessment service involves a thorough onsite survey to collect data before processing the data into an easy to understand yet comprehensive report.

During the on site survey, the surveyor will need to discuss with a point of contact who could be at risk in and about the premises. Next they will identify the actual fire hazards which include sources of ignition, fuel and oxygen

Following this, the surveyor will assess the risk in comparison to any existing fire safety measures relating to the premises.

Your Questions, Our Answers

A fire risk assessment is an on-site survey and report that identifies potential fire hazards and rates the risk, and improvements to reduce risk if necessary.

Commercial premises are legally required to have a fire risk assessment, and any commercial premise with 5+ employees must keep a written record of this.

Domestic properties that are not "single private dwellings" are also legally required to have a fire risk assessment on the common areas of the property. For example, in a block of flats the stairwells, lifts, reception areas, garages, hallways, etc. will need a fire risk assessment. An example of a single private dwelling would be a house occupied by only one household.

HMO fire risk assessment requirements vary depending on locality.

Domestic properties with paying guests (guest houses, B&Bs, etc.) will also require a fire risk assessment.

You will need to get a fire risk assessment if you are any of the following:

  • In control of a commercial property (owner, landlord, property manager, employer, etc.)
  • A landlord of a domestic property that is not a single private dwelling.
  • In control of a domestic property that has paying guests (like a B&B).

An example of a single private dwelling would be a house occupied by only one household.

Fire risk assessments should be reviewed and updated regularly, generally it is recommended that this happens annually. If a change occurs in the property that deems the fire risk assessment incorrect or outdated (e.g. change of layout), in which case the fire risk assessment should be updated soon after the changes.

Fire safety regulations say that the person completing the fire risk assessment should be “competent”, so they need to be knowledgeable enough to identify the complexity of fire risks potentially present at the property.

For small, uncomplicated properties you may be able to complete your own fire risk assessment following the government's fire risk assessment checklist. However, for larger or more complicated properties it’s advisable to have a trained professional complete your fire risk assessment for you.
