As of 1st October 2015 it is a legal requirement for smoke alarms to be fitted on each storey of rented property.
These alarms can be battery operated (excluding Scotland) and have to be in full working order for the duration of the tenancy.
It is also a legal requirement for Carbon Monoxide alarms to be installed within proximity of any solid fuel
burning appliance, such as coal or wood. It is also highly recommended by the Government that these are
installed within proximity of fossil fuel burning appliances.
All of these alarms must be tested and certified annually to ensure they are in full working order.
Please note, should the required alarms not be present prior to move in, Purplebricks will organise for the
supply and fitting of the required alarms and the appropriate fee will be payable by You.
