Quiz - how well do you understand your lease?
Understand the key things you should know about your lease. If you are a purchaser, this can help make sure your solicitor has covered all of these points and explained them clearly to you.
The law does not specify who is allowed to carry out a fire risk assessment. The law simply states that the person must be competent enough to complete a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of that particular building.
If you don’t have the expertise or time to do a fire risk assessment yourself, you should appoint a specialist to do it for you. Although you can carry out a fire risk assessment yourself, if you live in a large or complex building it is recommended that you get a professional to carry out the assessment.
You can download a guide to choosing a competent fire risk assessor from the Chief Fire Officers Association’s website.
