Hello, I'm new and am planning to rent out two separate bedsit rooms to lodgers on my top floor (first floor) I'm on ground floor and sometimes use their bathroom and utility room.

They have new portable mini oven, electric two ring hobs + microwave, kettle and toaster in rooms - they wash up in utility room. Their exit in case of fire is one exit down the stairs out of front door, or onto roof extension at the back which drops to less than 7 feet. I have fire alarms + gas safety certificate.

But what do I need to do for fire safety in terms for regulations? Do I need heat detectors where they're cooking? Also fire blankets in room and extinguisher in hall? Or is that just HMOs (I am lodgings in private house). Also do I need to get a rope ladder for top front room if they don't have access to roof extension at back - it's first floor up? Thanks for help! Best, Linda
