Smoke and fire alarms
Smoke and fire alarms - council and social tenants
Your landlord is responsible for installing interlinked fire smoke and fire alarms and has been working towards installing these.
If you are a council house tenant you don’t need to do anything. We are installing new interlinked smoke and fire detectors across all our properties. If you have any concerns or questions relating to this, please contact your local housing office.
Housing association tenant
If you are a housing association tenant, your landlord is aware of the new standard and has been working to ensure the new alarms are in place, where needed. If you have any concerns or questions relating to this, please contact your landlord.
Smoke and fire alarms for deaf or deafblind
Under the Equality Act, tenants (both social and private renting) can ask their landlord to make certain changes to the property that are needed to avoid the disabled person being at a disadvantage, and appropriate fire and smoke alarms for deaf or deafblind people fit into that category. If you or someone in your household falls into one of these groups, please advise your landlord.
