Landlords…Are you ready for the new Smoke and CO Alarm Legislation

nest

 

New legislation will come into force on the 10th October 2015 that requires private landlords of residential premises within England by law to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms within their properties.

It is to be clarified in the next few months is Wales will be included. Scottish landlords already are required by law to undertake these requirements under existing legislation.

On the government’s website it reads:

“The proposed changes to the law would require landlords to install smoke alarms on every floor of their property, and test them at the start of every tenancy.

Landlords would also need to install carbon monoxide alarms in high risk rooms – such as those where a solid fuel heating system is installed.

This would bring private rented properties into line with existing building regulations that already require newly-built homes to have hard-wired smoke alarms installed.”

It is not currently known who will enforce this law from the 10th October 2015 but it is proposed that those who fail to install the relevant detection would face sanctions and could face up to a £5,000 civil penalty.

If you are a tech savvy landlord we at Q Technical Services would advise installations of Nest Protect where your tenants will feel protected by one integrated device and all your detection requirements are covered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_r85DW-8X4#t=23.

As a landlord you can feel safe in the hands that if one of your devices fails to operate you will be made aware automatically so as you can take action…
