The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015

The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 (“Regulations”) which comes into force on 1st October 2015.

The Regulations state that from 1st October 2015 a private landlord (i.e. non registered provider of social housing) must have fitted a smoke alarm in each storey of a let property and a carbon monoxide detector in a room which has a solid fuel burning appliance. Please be aware that these appliances must be checked by you to ensure that they are in proper working order at the start of each new tenancy granted. If you fail to comply with the Regulations, the Local Authority may serve a ‘Remedial Notice’ on you which could result in a fine.

If you have any queries about these new regulations, please do not hesitate to contact the Property Disputes Team.
