Are landlords required to install a CO alarm in rooms with gas appliances?

No. Under the new proposals, carbon monoxide alarms would only be required in rooms containing a solid fuel burning appliance (rooms containing a coal fire, log burning stove, etc). However, as gas appliances do emit carbon monoxide, reputable landlords will install working carbon monoxide alarms in addition to obtaining the annual gas safety certificate for each appliance.
