Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms - Legislative Changes in the Private Rental Sector you need to be aware of :
9 May 2015
From October 2015 and subject to Parliamentary approval, private rented sector landlords will be required to have working smoke alarms on every floor of their property and carbon monoxide alarms in rooms where a solid fuel heating system is installed. Alarms must be tested at the start of every new tenancy.
The regulations do not stipulate the type of alarm to be installed; rather, landlords should make an informed decision and choose the best alarm for their circumstances and property.
Landlords who fail to comply with the duties outlined in the regulations may be subject to a civil penalty.
