View Full Version : Fire Alarm check

02-12-2011, 18:29 PM
Hi all,

I want to test the fire alarm at some properties where the tenants reside. I was thinking of calling them to make them aware and giving them a letter. Also want to inspect the property at this time. I am aware I will have to gain their permission in order to inspect their rooms but what about the fire alarm. Do I have to get their permission to conduct a test or merely give them notice that I will be conducting a test?

Many thanks!

I would say that testing the fire alarm was part of an inspection, why make a separate issue of it?

unless property is an HMO

So if one tenant does not give permission to check the fire alarm system then we cannot do so?
For example, if a tenant says no to a gas service inspector entering are these rights the same for refusing a fire alarm check?

Just want to know where I stand. Thank u for your replies!
