Hi All,
I am interested in the safety checks people carry out in their HMOs and who they get to complete this? I am struggling to find the exact everything I read seems to differ slightly, I canít seem to find a definitive answer. I am in the process of completing on a 7 bed/4 storey licensed HMO. It will be fitted with a new panel alarm system and emergency lightly as per the regulations.

From what I can see Daily, Weekly Quarterly and then a 6 month check for fire alarms and Daily, weekly and 6 monthly for Emergency lighting.

I am interested in who people get to do these checks, especially the daily ones. In other forums cleaners who have been trained have been suggested for the weekly ones but not so sure on who would do daily, I donít plan to visit the property daily and donít imagine any landlord does this. If it is the tenants then how do you get them to do this and also check that it is being done?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated please.
