Fire Safety Advice - Smoke alarms for landlords

Landlords in Cleveland are being urged to act now to ensure they are ready for new safety laws aimed at saving dozens of lives a year.

New regulations make it compulsory for all landlords to fit smoke alarms in rented homes.

Under the new laws, smoke alarms must be fitted on every floor of the property as well as carbon monoxide alarms in properties which burn solid fuels. Landlords must check the alarms are working at the start of every new tenancy with potential penalties of up to £5,000 if they dont comply.

To help landlords gear up for the new regulations the Government has provided Cleveland Fire Brigade with a limited number of free smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to give out to relevant landlords.
