What are the new smoke alarms and CO detectors regulations in rented property UK?

As of the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (Amendment) from 1 October 2022, both private and social sector landlords are obligated by law to:

  • Have at least one smoke alarm present on each property floor with a room used for a living, whether it's a private or social rental;
  • Every room that is used for living accommodation and contains a fixed combustion appliance should be equipped with a Carbon monoxide detector (excluding gas cookers);
  • The landlord is responsible for repairing and replacing the smoke and CO alarms once the tenants notice any problem.
    • Why should you outfit your property with a smoke alarm or CO detector?

      Released by the incomplete burning of fuels, carbon monoxide is a highly toxic, colourless and odourless gas that shouldn't be toyed with. A CO detector will warn you about the presence of toxic gas in the air produced by faulty gas appliances before it can reach high levels. In case of an emergency situation every second could be important, that's why having smoke alarms in your property can give you that extra time for reaction.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Why should my rental property have a CO or a smoke alarm detector?

A: Fires are unpredictable, and so is gas appliance malfunction. Tragic fire hazard deaths are four times more likely to occur if a single smoke alarm is not fitted in a rental property, shows information published on the UK government's official website. Booking a CO and smoke alarm installation service will keep your tenants safe while also helping you avoid hefty fines.

Q: How many alarms should I install in my property and where?


  • At least one smoke alarm should be installed in every storey used for a living.
  • Ensure that your smoke alarms are securely fixed on the ceilings of busier areas of your premises, such as the hall or the landing.
  • Carbon monoxide alarms should be positioned at direct head height on either a wall or a shelf. They should also be at least one metre away from any fuel-burning appliances.
  • Finally, test your smoke alarms at least once a month to ensure they are audible in any part of your house or flat. Clean the alarms from dust so the sensors can do their job. Don't forget to change the batteries every year.
Q: Is it difficult to maintain my smoke and CO alarm?

A: Not at all! Just make sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines. It's recommended that you test your detectors each month. Batteries, on the other hand, should be replaced once a year. If you just installed your CO detectors or smoke alarms, don't worry about replacing them anytime soon – if properly maintained, you should only book an alarm replacement once every 10 years.

Q: What's the difference between smoke alarms and heat detectors?

A: It's a common mistake that having heat detectors can reduce the need for smoke alarms. Both can indeed detect a fire, but the main difference is that the smoke alarms detect the first signs of fire, while the heat alarms detect the temperature change caused by a fire. So to give yourself more time to react in an emergency, it's critical to act fast.
