Talking about Section 21 notices is likely to send most people to sleep so apart from ensuring readers and landlords are aware that there are very important changes that they can read by selecting this link I feel there has been enough discussion and confusion without me adding to it. Section 21
The new regulations regarding smoke alarms in rental properties and unfortunately in a small capacity carbon monoxide detectors should be welcomed if only the requirement to install carbon monoxide alarms was more widespread.
The regulations are fairly simple although there is still confusion regarding existing tenancies and whether there is a grace period.
There are plenty of articles to read on the internet to confuse things even further but we would recommend landlords presume these regulations cover all properties from 1st October.
