Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Landlords are required to fit smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to property that is rented to tenants.
The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 are aimed at increasing the safety of private sector tenants.
Landlords must ensure that a smoke alarm is equipped on each storey of the premises and that a carbon monoxide alarm is equipped in any room where there is a solid fuel burning appliance.
The Council can issue a notice to require the alarms to be fitted; a penalty can be imposed if this is not complied with.
