From Dublin City Council websiteI find it hard to believe there is signing off and issuing of fire certs without inspection? Are you sure it is based on plans
If a firm of architects have signed off a fire safety certificate that is false are they not liable ? Don't they have insurance for such eventualities.
The council was looking to place some social housing tenants in to them and when they did their inspection prior to committing to them they realised that they are deathtraps.I'm not 100% sure how the issue came to light. Was it the council? What is DFB? Was is a structural engineer looking at the building for a potential buyer? Was it a resident/owner?
