Landlords are now legally obliged to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in all of their properties.
Carbon Monoxide poisoning is responsible for approximately 50 deaths in the UK each year, mainly down to the fact the gas is odorless meaning leaks can go easily unnoticed if no detector is installed.
The Housing Minister, Brandon Lewis, has backed the move as the government looks to provide a bigger, better and safer private rented sector.
CORGI Services welcomes this change to the law, as it will hopefully see the increased safety of people living in rented property.
