Smoke and CO2 alarms

The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 were approved by Parliament and came into force on 1 October 2015.

Since 1 October 2015, Private sector landlords have been required to have at least one smoke alarm installed on every storey of their properties and a carbon monoxide
alarm in any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (e.g. a coal fire, wood burning stove).

After that, the landlord must make sure the alarms are in working order at the start of each new tenancy.

Please refer to the government's advice on smoke and CO2 alarms
