Many Landlords are still not aware of new legal responsibilties
On October 1st 2015, new regulations were approved and immediately enforced, obliging all private sector landlords to have smoke alarms installed in their properties (and carbon monoxide alarms where appropriate).
Many landlords simply unaware, with 71% still not having organised a carbon monoxide alarm for their property after the introduction of the new rules.
So as the installation of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms has now moved from good practice to legal requirement, do you have all the information you need?
- Do you know if your property may be exempt?
- Do you know what counts as a ‘solid fuel appliance’ and why it’s important?
- Do you know how much you will be fined if you don’t meet the legal requirements as of October 1st 2015?
For the answers to these, and all the other questions you didn’t yet know you needed to be asking, see our Better Letter’s Guide to the New Alarm Laws for Landlords: What You Need to Know.
