Things have now progressed and landlords are required to have mains powered smoke detector as follows
One functioning smoke alarm in the room which is frequently used by the occupants for general daytime living purposes- Lounge
One functioning smoke alarm in every circulation space, such as hallways and landings.
All alarms should be interlinked.
The details and legislation changes can be found here.
Applies from the following dates:
1st December 2015- for any tenancies entered into on or after this date (includes current tenants signing a new lease)
1st December 2015- for existing tenancies.
We are currently looking at what costs are involved and how we can keep expenditure to a minimum for ACE Property Management landlords. We will be contacting our landlords soon with further information.
We fully understand that this is another regulatory cost but we must make sure that our landlords investments comply with legislation.
Should you not currently use ACE Property Management but would be interested in meeting to discuss your management requirements further or find out more information on any aspect of the letting industry please contact me directly. email@example.com
