Premises with paying guests

Are you the owner of premises with paying guests?

Do you need more information on fire safety standards applying to your property?

If the answer is yes, you need to read the Department for Communities and Local Government's guidance entitled “Do you have paying guests?.

It is specifically targeted at the owners (‘responsible persons’) of bed and breakfast establishments, small guest houses, self catering operations and other small premises providing accommodation for paying guests. It sets out a number of minimum fire safety benchmarks which such premises should consider to ensure an adequate level of fire safety.
