London Property Managment Companies should be providing Residents with ‘Suitable & Sufficient’ Fire Safety Risk Assessments!

Once again we have been contacted by worried Residents of a purpose built block of flats in London, wanting us to check whether the Fire Safety Risk Assessment supplied by their Property Management Company was ok.

Worried Residents were refused a ‘buy to let Mortgage’ due to the Fire Safety conditions of their Flat. They immediately contacted London Fire Risk Assessments to check things out!

When we asked to witness a copy of the Fire Safety Risk Assessment for the communal area the Property Management Company was very hesitant to send it through. Finally it arrive and as suspected the report was not a ‘suitable and sufficient’ Fire Risk Assessment as required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 it was in fact and Health and Safety Risk Assessment!

The Residents showed their dissatisfaction as they pay high Management  fees and expect that the premise is looked after properly with the right documentation and services in place!

Outcome: London Fire Risk Assessments are booked in to carry out a full inspection!
