Landlords have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their tenants. A gas safety certificate is required annually and must be carried out by a Gas Safe Engineer. In accordance with Fire Regulations, all soft furnishings manufactured after 1st March 1989 must have a fire label. If no label is present or furnishings were manufactured before this date, then the safety of the filling cannot be proven and they must be removed from the premises. Currently the law states that all properties built after June 1992 must have mains operated interconnected smoke alarms fitted to all floors. Landlords with properties built prior to this date, that do not have mains wired alarms, are required to fit working order battery alarms to each floor. It is also a requirement for carbon monoxide detectors to be fitted in any room containing a solid fuel burning appliance (eg a coal fire, wood burning stove). However, as gas appliances in general can emit carbon monoxide, we would expect and encourage reputable landlords to ensure that working carbon monoxide alarms are installed in rooms with these. The Electrical Equipment and Safety Regulations say you must ensure that the electrics are safe, with operating instructions and safety notices supplied before a let commences. We recommend landlords get the electrics regularly checked by a qualified electrician.
