Landlords of HMOs must ensure that there is adequate fire safety in shared housing, as they carry more risk than other types of accommodation.
Guidance has been introduced by LACORS offering advice for residential buildings to ensure they are safe from fire. The council works with Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service to ensure that this guidance is followed.
We strongly recommend that existing landlords or prospective landlords who are unsure whether they have sufficient fire safety should contact us for advice and guidance.
