HMO Fire Safety Requirements

A House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) is a property that is shared by three or more tenants who are not members of the same family. HMO landlords must ensure that the property is managed properly and meets certain fire safety standards.

HMOs face different fire safety regulations to standard buy-to-let properties and are often much more complex to implement solutions.  This is where FireCare can help.

FireCare Works with HMO Landlords Throughout the South, Offering HMO Fire Protection Services Including:

    Fire doors are a legal requirement for homes of multiple occupancy (HMOs). To ensure you are compliant with fire safety orders, the responsible person of an HMO must ensure fire doors are well maintained and fitted in all places accessible to residents and members of the public.

    Professional fire door installation and inspections from FireCare will prevent the spread of fire, allow a means of escape, and keep you compliant with fire safety laws.

    Automatic Fire Detection (AFD) is a Fire Alarm System that automatically sounds an alarm without the need for manual activation. HMO properties must have a fire alarm system of smoke and heat detectors that automatically raises the alarm when it detects the presence of fire. If you need a new automatic fire detection system at your HMO in Hampshire, contact the friendly team at FireCare today.

If you are considering the differences between professional fire risk assessment vs self assessment, FireCare can help. Only by choosing a competent, trained individual to complete your assessment can you be sure that your assessment meets HSE legal requirements, avoiding fines and ensuring the safety of your staff and the public. 

If you own an HMO property, you need to make sure there's at least one smoke alarm installed on every level of the house where there are rooms used as living accommodations.

The level of fire safety at an HMO will vary according to the number of stories of your building, the number of rooms, and the number of occupants living at your property. The standard HMO fire safety regulations require HMOs to have: a valid fire risk assessment, functioning fire alarms, smoke and heat detectors, serviced fire extinguishers and well-maintained fire doors.
