Smoke & Carbon Monoxide alarms must be installed in rental properties as required. These detectors generally have a 10 year life span with expiry dates printed thereon. Whether mains wired or battery powered detectors, we recommend installation of sealed units with 10 year life lithium batteries in order to ensure that the detector works as intended through its life span and also to prevent tampering with the units through removal of batteries for example. A fire blanket must be securely fitted in each rental property.
Suitable safety restrictors must be fitted to windows more than 1,400MM above external ground level. Restrictors must be of a specific design and standard i.e. keyless. A standard 3 bedroom semi-detached house normally requires between 4 & 6 restrictors to be fitted.
