I have a small conversion block of flats. The council got in and have assessed the communal area for HHSRS. I not sure they have a right to do this under this system. The house was converted to comply with the Building Regulations some 22 years ago but does not have a Building regulation compliance certificate.

Officer has asked me to put in a whole house fire alarm system with panel by the door.

I have looked at RLA section on HHSRS but it was not of assistance for my particular situation.

Does any one know case law in this area? Or how HHSRS fits in with the Building Regulations and RRO? Currently HHSRS is at conflict with the Building Regulations!

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
