I have received a letter from my local council advising me to apply for a HMO licence. Apparently they are now checking door to door! Cheeky bugers!

I have inter connected smoke alarms on every floor , heat alarm in the kitchen, all fire doors and fire extinguishers in the landing and hallway.

After speaking to the council they require ĎAFTí fire alarm system with various zones. Is this a normal request? Is there any way this can be avoided? I appreciate this is for safety but a bit of a over kill donít you think?

Any thoughts, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Z
