Interlinked Smoke Alarms

Interlinked Smoke Alarms

Tenant Referencing

The standard requires:

  • One smoke alarm installed in the room most frequently used for general daytime living purposes
  • One smoke alarm in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings
  • One heat alarm installed in every kitchen

All alarms should be ceiling mounted and interlinked. There is also a requirement for carbon monoxide detectors to be fitted where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance (such as boilers, fires (including open fires), heaters and stoves) or a flue.

Safety is paramount. Landlords have a primary duty to keep their tenants safe, failure to do this can lead to a hefty fine or even prison. After recent legislation, landlords are now required to install a smoke alarm on every floor where there's a room being used for living space while a carbon monoxide detector must be installed in every room where there's a solid fuel-burning appliance.

In addition, it is also a legal requirement that tenants are provided with a valid Gas Safety certificate at the start of their tenancy.
