A little while ago some healthy banter around smoke and fire detection took place here >> <<. It was very obvious that some landlords haven't got a clue about the topic and I elaborated the point including recent some cases of note.

Fire safety isn't difficult and you don't need qualifications in it (though you can if you want to) to compile a competent risk assessment and the requirements that it will highlight to you. Reading the LACORS fire safety guidance manual is slightly in depth but reasonably easy to follow.

Another method I've just discovered is here >> <<. I've used Aico detectors in many properties both hard wired and radio linked and they are great. They've just updated their website with a very helpful guide built into it for all sorts of detection including CO types. They also send out a landlords booklet which is smoke detection at the front and CO detection at the back. Great information in a simple format for those that don't fully understand or are finding it difficult.
