DCLG Guidance – The requirement to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

From 1 October 2015 it is expected that the draft Smoke and Carbon Monoxide (England) Regulations 2015 (“the Regulations”) will come into force. 

The Regulations will require park owners who let residential mobile homes or any other residential properties to install and test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in specific circumstances. The Regulations will not, however, apply to Mobile Homes Act Agreements.

In order to assist park owners in understanding their obligations under the Regulations the Department for Communities and Local Government has published guidance. A copy of the guidance is located here.
