“I’ve heard carbon monoxide alarms aren’t needed for gas boilers”
To clarify the legislation is as follows:
With effect from 1 October 2015, under the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Regulations 2015 SI 2015/1693, landlords in the private rented sector must ensure that, where a property is occupied under a tenancy, there is provided:
(1) A smoke alarm on each storey of a property that contains a room used as living accommodation
(2) A carbon monoxide alarm in any room used as living accommodation which contains a solid-fuel burning appliance. (We recommend providing a Carbon Monoxide alarm in every property.)
“Is it the landlord’s responsibility to change batteries?”
Alarms should be checked to be in working order at the start of every tenancy and this is why we recommend and supply the FireAngel/Kidde products with long lasting batteries. Cheaper alarms are available but are prone to tamper and short battery life. Tenants are unlikely to change the batteries in alarms meaning your property, and your tenants, are at risk.
