HMO Fire Safety Regulations

All three Councils in SWPSHP have adopted the LACORS fire safety standards which were published in July 2008 and uses this guidance as a minimum standard whenever it undertakes a safety inspection.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006 also known as the Fire Safety Order came into force in October 2006. This legislation applies to the common areas of HMO's, buildings containing flats, and is enforced by the Fire Service, however some low risk shared houses are exempt.
