UK Rental Sector legislation on smoke alarms soon to take effect

An overhaul of smoke detector regulations for rental homes in the UK released last March will take effect this October.  Most saliently, every floor of a property should have a working smoke detector.  Fortunately for private landlords, local fire services usually offer free detectors to them.  Failing to meet these requirements might land the landlord with a £5,000 fine.

This upgrade to the regulations is expected to significantly increase the number of detectors deployed; good news for safety and recyclers alike.
