If you want to comply with the fire safety regulations cheaply and easily, then this Landlord's Fire Risk Assessment Kit is for you.

This Kit contains all the fire risk assessment template forms and background information that you need to make a fire risk assessment, without the expense of a solicitor. 

Your fire safety obligations as a landlord

As a landlord you have a legal duty to ensure that your rented property is safe from fire. A fire risk assessment form is evidence that you have fulfilled your responsibilities.

Without one, you could be open to claims if there was a fire. What’s more, landlords of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) are legally obliged to carry out fire risk assessments.

This Landlord's Fire Risk Assessment Kit will help ensure that your rental property is safe. 

Solicitor-approved guidance manual

Approved by David Smith, lettings solicitor at Anthony Gold Solicitors, and Rick Lawton, fire safety consultant, this Kit includes fire risk assessment template forms and an expert guidance manual, detailing the main elements in a fire risk assessment. These include:

  • Building construction
  • Occupancy of building
  • People at risk
  • Fire safety checks
  • Ignition sources
  • Hazardous materials
  • Fire detection systems
  • Fire suppression systems
  • Means of escape
  • Emergency lighting
  • Fire Service operational facilities
  • Training
  • Corrective actions and recommendations

Fire risk assessment templates

This Kit provides easy access to three essential fire risk assessment form downloads that you must produce if an inspecting officer from the local fire authority visits your premises.

All the fire risk assessment template forms are solicitor-approved and include simple-to-follow guidance on how to complete them.

These templates are:

  1. Fire Risk Assessment – the fire risk assessment form itself
  2. Emergency Action Plan - a fire risk assessment template detailing the actions to be taken should a fire start
  3. Fire Log Book – a fire risk assessment form for recording information regarding fire safety

Note: These fire risk assessment templates are not included in the paper Kit, but easy online access is provided to all the forms. These templates, however, are included in our "Download Now" eKit.

Fire safety legislation compliant

This Landlord's Fire Risk Assessment Kit can be used throughout the UK and complies with current fire safety legislation:

  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales
  • The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 in Scotland
  • The Fire Safety (N.I.) Regulations 2006 in Northern Ireland

Fire risk assessment note:

Fire safety risk assessments do not apply to people’s private homes, including individual flats in a block or house.
