Dear RLA,

do you have an easy to underside guide on the fire regs that a landlord must follow. I am well aware of the fire alarm requirements but what about the property itself.
The reason for asking is that I am thinking of buying an old property that may not meet current regulations. Is is my responibility to make modifcations or is there exception for existing properties.
As a pointer the house has the old style polystrine square tiles on the ceilings. I expect this is outside modern regulations in regards to fire safety
