Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015
The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 have now passed through Government and will be enforced from 1st October 2015.
What you need to know as a Landlord:
• From 1st October 2015 it will be law that all let properties must be fitted with Smoke Alarms on every floor and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms in every room where there is a solid fuel appliance (gas appliances are not included but it is highly recommended to have a CO Alarm in rooms with a gas appliance as they do emit carbon monoxide). Battery operated alarms are acceptable.
• This is applicable for all existing tenancies, and new tenancies.
• For any new tenancy or renewed tenancy from 1st October, the regulations require the Landlord to ensure all alarms are checked and recorded as working on Day 1 of the tenancy.
