A general guide to fire safety in blocks of flats.

This Advice Note (AN) is for professional fire safety personnel involved in the residential long leasehold sector, including managing agents, developers and landlords.

It represents the core of good practice for managing agents who manage fire safety in residential long leasehold properties and the clients/responsible persons whom they act for. It has been written to apply to residential long leasehold properties (a lease of a term in excess of 21 years when originally granted) in England and Wales where a service charge, which varies according to expenditure, is payable.
