Lettings update: Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
From October 2015, landlords will be required by law to install working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their properties.
The move by the Government will help to prevent up to 26 deaths and 670 injuries a year.
Supported by the 46 fire and rescue authorities of the UK, landlords will receive assistance to meet their new responsibilities with the provision of free alarms, coming from funding from the Government.
The move will avoid regulation which will push up rents and restrict the supply of homes, ultimately limiting the supply for tenants, as well as ensuring public safety.
