Help for Landlords to comply with Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Regulations

07 July 2016

Wakefield Council has a supply of battery operated smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to give to agents and landlords for fitting in privately rented homes where they are not present. The supply is to assist landlords in meeting the requirements of the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Regulations introduced in October 2015. The Regulations require that all privately rented homes have a smoke alarm fitted on each floor and a carbon monoxide alarm in any room where there is a coal or wood burning appliance.

If you need alarms for your properties, please email with the following information:

- The information on the attached form.

- A time and date that you would like to collect your detectors from the Council offices at Wakefield One, PO Box 700, Wakefield, WF1 2EB

- A contact phone number  so we can rearrange the time and date if no-one would be available.

Please note, if you were to come to the Council offices without an appointment, it is possible that no-one will be available to supply the required detectors.
