The house we are looking at is 2 story (bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs, downstairs is kitchen, living areas, 2x office/storage rooms, laundry and main bathroom). It only has 1 staircase, which is internal pretty much smack bang in the middle if the house (so if there was a fire, it would be extremely difficult to safely get out of the house unless we jumped out the windows upstairs).
Dh is under the impression there needs to be at least 2 staircases in a high set home for this reason. He thinks it is a legal requirement but we can't find anything about it, all we have found is measurements relating to building staircases and construction. Nothing about the actual number that is legally required.
Does anyone know what the laws are regarding this? Is dh correct or is there no legal requirement to have more than 1 staircase in a high set home?
