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 say who is allowed to carry out a fire risk assessment.
However, the person must be competent enough to complete a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of that particular building.
For large or complex buildings, this may mean getting a professional fire risk assessor to carry out the assessment.
You can download a guide to choosing a competent fire risk assessor (PDF, 91K) from the Chief Fire Officers Association’s website.
