The   proposed   changes   to   the   law   would   require   landlords   to   install smoke   alarms   on   every   floor   of   their   property,   and   test   them   at   the start of every tenancy. Landlords   would   also   need   to   install   carbon   monoxide   alarms   in   high risk   rooms   –   such   as   those   where   a   solid   fuel   heating   system   is installed. Those   who   fail   to   install   smoke   and   carbon   monoxide   alarms   would face sanctions and could face up to a £5,000 civil penalty. The   allocation   of   funding   to   fire   and   rescue   authorities   to   offer   free smoke    and    carbon    monoxide    alarms    to    local    landlords    will    be announced shortly.
