Smoke alarms for
rented properties

As of next month, new regulations state that landlords will be required by law to install smoke alarms in all their properties. It has been specified that a smoke alarm will need to be fitted on every floor of a rented property, and even carbon monoxide alarms in high-risk rooms. The new regulations also state that landlords will need to test their smoke alarms at the beginning of every tenancy.

Failing to install a smoke alarm could result in a £5,000 fine so landlords need to make sure they get smoke alarms installed in their property by October. Here’s a brief overview of the best protocol to follow to ensure your tenants are safe and you meet the updated regulations.


Smoke and heat detectors are the first port of call for protecting properties against fire. You can also get combined systems, detecting both smoke and heat, so you can be sure that fire is identified quickly and efficiently. 


Once smoke has been detected, you need to know that the correct alarm system is in place so that tenants are alerted. The new law states that a smoke alarm must be on every floor of the rental property, ensuring a suitable level of fire protection.

If you live away from the rental property, it is probably best if you have an alarm company such as Standfast maintain your alarms, and test them for you at the start of every tenancy.  This way, you can be sure that the alarms are working and comply with the updated laws.

Staying within the law with Standfast

As a landlord, it’s also really important that you don’t compromise on safety and use high-quality alarms that meet British and European standards. Standfast comply with all these standards, and have been installing secure smoke alarms in Bristol for nearly 32 years.
