Private landlords – Smoke Alarm Request

landlord checklistAll landlords (except registered social housing providers) must comply with the regulations that came into force in October 2015.

You must:

Failure to comply with the regulations could lead to penalties of up to £5,000.

Before filling in this form please ensure that you have informed your tenants and they have consented to staff from Cleveland Fire Brigade contacting them to arrange to visit them and fit smoke and carbon monoxide alarms where necessary.

Due to the new regulations coming into force we are dealing with a large number of requests. Please be assured we will be in touch as soon as possible.
