Smoke alarms for landlords

Since 1 October 2015, new regulations have required landlords to ensure the fire safety of their tenants, as well as offer protection against carbon monoxide poisoning.

Landlords are now required to:

Enforcement of the regulations is the responsibility of the local housing authority. If a landlord fails to fit and maintain alarms in their properties, the council has power to levy a penalty charge of up to £5,000.

All ‘specified tenancies’ are affected by the change in rules, i.e. residential premises where a person or persons have a right to occupy the premises and rent is payable.

The regulations specifically exclude registered social landlords from these obligations. Certain types of properties and arrangements are also excluded, such as houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), lodgers, long leases, student halls of residence, hostels and refuges, care homes, hospitals and hospices. However, other appropriate legislation applies in most cases.
