Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms compulsory from 1 October

Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms compulsory from 1 October 

All rented properties in England must provide a carbon monoxide alarm in rooms used as living accommodation where there is a fixed combustion appliance, such as gas heaters and boilers. New Regulations once approved will come into force on 1st October 2022

The The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (Amendment) Regulations 2022 amends the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015. Previously the requirement only applied to solid fuel combustion appliances, such as wood burners. The rules will, however, not extend to gas cookers.

A new requirement of the amended rule is to ensure when a tenant reports to the landlord or letting agent that an alarm may not be in proper working order, the alarm must be repaired or replaced.
