Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Regulations

The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 have been approved by Parliament and came into force on 1 October 2015. These will require private sector landlords to have at least one smoke alarm installed on every storey of their properties, and a carbon monoxide alarm in any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (e.g. a coal fire, wood burning stove etc). After that, the landlord must make sure the alarms are in working order at the start of each new tenancy. The regulations aim to reduce the risk of injury or death to tenants caused by fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.

The Government produced an explanatory booklet especially for landlords which is available at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/smoke-and-carbon-monoxide-ala...

Burnley Council's Statement of Principles for Determining Financial Penalties - downloadable in the right hand column of this page - outlines the Councils principles which it will follow in determining the amount of a penalty charge for a breach in the Regulations.

The Lancashire Fire Service have a website for the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 Legislation: http://lfrs.dock.duodesign.co.uk/smoke_alarm_regulations_criteria/ . On the website landlords can register to get free smoke and CO detectors (dependent upon availability).
