Don`t Fall Foul Of The New Smoke Alarm Regulations!

Date Added 28/09/2015

From 1st October 2015 all rented residential accommodation will be legally required to have one smoke alarm ‘on each storey of the premises on which there is a room used wholly or partly as living accommodation`.

The regulations are fairly simple, with no specification on what type of alarm, just the number and when they need to be checked. The new regulations also now impose a requirement for carbon monoxide alarms to be installed where there is a solid fuel burner in a premises. There is a fine of up to £5,000 for non-compliance, and the responsibility lies exclusively with the landlord.

As a responsible letting agent, from the 1st October Distinct Estate Agents will ensure all the properties they manage comply with the new regulations, and will inform landlords of any non-compliance, ensuring our landlords don`t inadvertently breach the new regulations.

With increasing numbers of regulations being created specifically around rented residential accommodation, it may be the time when, for your peace of mind, to engage a professional letting agent to manage your property.
