Carbon Monoxide Compliance Rule Comes Into Force

25 September 2022 / Landlord News

As of October 1 2022, all landlords are now required to ensure there is a carbon
monoxide alarm in every room housing a tenant
if it contains a ‘fixed combustion
appliance’.

While the amendment doesn’t include gas cookers, it includes every other device
burning gas, oil, coal or wood, including gas and oil boilers and log-burning
stoves. Failure to comply could lead to a £5,000 fine.

The amendment also requires landlords to be sure that carbon monoxide and
smoke alarms alarms are fixed or replaced as soon as they are reported faulty.

British Standard recommends alarms at head height, up to three metres from any
potential source of carbon monoxide. If you are unsure about either
requirements or installation, contact Stirling Ackroyd Property Management
team
for more information.
