Landlords are being urged to install working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their properties now that it has become a legal requirement under new government legislation.

From October 1, all privately rented homes must have a working smoke alarm installed on each floor of the property and a CO alarm fitted, if solid fuel burning appliances are present.

Landlords will be responsible for ensuring that all alarms are in full working order at the start of every new tenancy.
