LANDLORDS…ARE YOUR PROPERTIES LEGAL AND SAFE?

   What devices do landlords need? New legislation came into force in October 2015 requiring landlords to install working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their properties in England. Regulations require a smoke alarm on every floor where there is accommodation and also a CO alarm in any habitable rooms with a solid fuel appliance. Local authorities have a duty to serve notice on the landlord if there is a breach of the Regulations and can execute remedial action .
