Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms – When do they have to be fitted?
The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 require that owners of parks in England fit smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in any mobile homes rented for residential occupation.
The Regulations don’t apply to homes occupied under the Mobile Homes Act 1983 or holiday letting fleets. Owners of holiday letting fleets are however required by law to carry out risk assessments and if risks identified include carbon monoxide or fire risks then management of this risk would usually include fitting and regularly testing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
