Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to be required in all rented homes
All rental properties, both private and social, will soon be required to have smoke and carbon monoxide alarms installed. The move, supported by the British Property Federation was announced yesterday by communities minister, Penny Mordaunt. The BFP has recommended that landlords and their agents should be required to ensure that detectors are working at the start of a tenancy, whilst tenants should be required to maintain and test alarms and to report any faults.
