Are you required to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms?
From 1 October 2015 the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide (England) Regulations 2015 (“the Regulations”) will come into force.
The Regulations obligate park owners to install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in any mobile homes they own & rent out. Park owners will also be required to test the alarms at the beginning of new letting agreement. A failure to comply with the requirements could result in financial penalties.
The Regulations only apply to parks in England and do not apply to homes occupied under a Mobile Homes Act 1983 Agreement.
