What do the new smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm regulations require?

The draft regulations are currently awaiting Parliamentary approval.  If they are approved, from October 1, 2015, private rented sector landlords will be required to have smoke alarms installed on every floor of their property and carbon monoxide alarms in rooms where solid fuel is used. Landlords will be required to test all the alarms at the start of every new tenancy to make sure they are working.
