Updated Holiday Accommodation Fire Risk Assessment Form

November 2023

The fire regulations around sleeping accommodation continue to evolve and the Hotel or B&B Fire Risk Assessment Form template has now been reviewed and updated accordingly. This template can also be used by small establishments run via online marketplaces for holiday accommodation such as Airbnb and Vrbo.

Whether you rent out your entire house/flat or a single room on an online marketplace you are required to carry out or commission a fire risk assessment. The updated fire risk assessment form template will help you to carry this out.

The premises owner – the duty holder can carry the assessment out themselves but it is always recommended that a competent person is instructed to assist.  More information can be found here. This guidance provides background information on the current legislation relating to carrying out a residential fire risk assessment and also provides information on who should be carrying out residential fire risk assessments.
