Under measures recently announced by the government, from the 1st October 2015 Landlords will be legally required to install working smoke alarms (and in some cases carbon monoxide alarms) in their properties on each storey of the premises on which there is a room used wholly or partly as living accommodation.
The government has stated that these regulations will help to prevent up to 26 deaths and 670 injuries a year. This is part of wider changes to ensure there are sufficient measures in place to protect public safety.
