Carbon Monoxide Detectors

From the 1st of December 2015, new regulations came into force in Scotland regarding the provision of long-life carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in privately rented housing. This addition to the Housing (Scotland) Act is an amendment to the existing Repairing Standard which requires landlords to ensure that rented properties are habitable, structurally sound and inherently safe.

The new regulations have firmly shifted the duty of care regarding the provision of carbon monoxide detection to landlords. The legislation applies to all landlords in Scotland renting out property with fixed combustion appliances of any kind.

In short, landlords must install a CO detector in all each rooms with a gas burning appliance (with the exception of those used exclusively for cooking).
