Carbon monoxide alarms: tenants safe and secure in their homes

Carbon monoxide alarms: tenants safe and secure in their homes

Minister backs APPCOG's latest report on CO alarms and tenants' safety

The latest APPCOG report looks at the issues around improving current regulations relating to the provision of carbon monoxide alarms in rented properties. The rpeort advocates that landlords must provide a CO alarm in properties containing any fuel burning appliance, as opposed to just solid fuel appliances. 

This report has never been of greater significance, both in light of the Government’s White Paper and following the recent tragic Grenfell Tower fire, which has highlighted the need for a fundamental review of health and safety regulations to protect tenants in England.

The launch of this report was launched on the same day that the Government announced their consultation on the reviews by the DCLG.
