The Government has announced that later this year they will review of the requirements for Carbon Monoxide Alarms in homes across England.
The review will address whether alarms should be required for all methods of heating, including gas and oil, the cost of alarms and new research on deaths caused by Carbon Monoxide.
ARLA Propertymark has worked closely with Government before and following, the introduction in 2015 of the requirement for private rented properties to have Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms in any room with a solid fuel appliance. ARLA Propertymark will be arguing for Government to listen to expertise within the industry and the need for sensible regulations with practical lead in times.
