Updated guidance for agents on smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

The government has issued detailed guidance ahead of a change in the law around smoke and carbon monoxide alarms coming into force on October 1 – just two months from today.

Timothy Douglas, head of policy and campaigns for Propertymark, says: “The updated regulations contain some subtle but significant changes for agents and landlords working in the PRS in England.

“They have been coming down the line for some time, but with a firm date set for their implementation and detailed guidance now published, our advice is that letting agents start to prepare immediately.
“Agents should ensure they fully understand the regulations and begin the installation of new alarms and repair of existing alarms, and update their property management practices accordingly and without delay.

“There is no transitional period after 1 October 2022 and fines of £5,000 for non-compliance.”
