rooming house

FYI :  
 
if you are renting out a Room in your home in Brandon, apparently it's considered a Rooming House and a fire inspector will visit to check that all safety rules are followed before you can have a "roommate" occupy the space.  
 
you need to have monthly updates, yearly fire extinguisher tests, and they will provide you with a list of the rules.  
 
a microwave is allowed in a room but not a toaster oven, and no extension cords -  
staying safe -

rooming house

this is according to the fire inspector who inspected the house  
we rent out one room in our home and have to keep a binder with all the regulations  
 
best to contact the fire department for the list and have your accommodations safetied for prevention

Door Lock

I know the work around in Winnipeg when I lived there was, if the door didn't have a key lock on it it wasn't a separate rented room. but you could have a lock on the inside then it wasn't classified as a rooming house.

Are you sure that was really the fire inspector? Check to see if your TV is missing.  
 
Or...you probably just play on a softball team with some buddinski fire safety person who weaseled their way into your house.  
 
Until I see the proof in writing, I reserve the right to remain skeptical. As far as fire safety, everyone should take it more seriously, whether they rent out a room or not.
