SMOKE AND CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM (AMENDMENT) REGULATIONS 2022
MOUNDSMERE ESTATE MANAGEMENT GUIDANCE
On 27 June 2022, the House of Commons and the House of Lords approved the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (Amendment) Regulations. This means it is now law and the Regulations will come into force on 1 October 2022.
The new Regulations mean all landlords:
- Must ensure a carbon monoxide alarm is provided in any room used as living accommodation which contains a fixed combustion appliance (excluding gas cookers).
- Will be legally obligated to ensure smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms are repaired or replaced once they are informed and the alarms are found to be faulty.
Landlords need to be ready and ensure their property is compliant with the new regulation. Any landlord found to be in breach could be fined up to £5,000.
