The “Responsible Person”. Typically the responsible person is the freeholder or landlord but may be a residential management company or a right to manage company.

This would usually be the local fire and rescue service.

Following our visit we will complete our significant findings in a Fire Risk Assessment report. The document will be supplied with a prioritised action plan which, if fully acted upon, will ensure the “responsible person(s)” meet their legal obligations and work towards best practice. The report will be sent to you within 72 hours of our visit via PDF along with a copy in the post.

We offer 90 days free support from the date of the Assessment in which we can assist you with any queries you may have.
