You could get an alterations notice if your premises have high safety risks, or will have if the use of the premises changes.
You could get an enforcement notice if we find a serious risk that’s not being managed. It will say what improvements are needed and by when.
These take effect immediately and are issued if we think the fire risk is so great that access to your premises needs to be prohibited or restricted.
You may be able to arrange an informal review by us if you disagree with the decision to issue a fire safety notice. You can also appeal to your local magistrates’ court within 21 days of receiving a notice.
In certain circumstances, you and West Midlands Fire Service can ask for a ‘determination’ from the Communities Secretary to resolve a dispute.
