Private renting housing standards for landlords

Information on smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

All privately rented homes must be fitted with a working smoke alarm on each floor of the property. A working carbon monoxide alarm should also be fitted in a room that has a solid fuel burning appliance. You could be fined if you do not comply with this.

See the guidance booklet for further information.
