I know this has been a popular subject over the last few months however, now the October deadline is looming I wonder if other landlords would share their experiences of sourcing these alarms.
After reading that the government was funding local fire authorities to provide private landlords with alarms I contacted my council who sent me a form to fill in with dates and times of local collection points at a local fire station.
My husband went along this morning to collect our ‘government funded free alarms’ for our nine properties (only c02 alarms as we have mains smoke alarms already installed). He was then told that they would only supply free alarms to properties that have open fires or log burners!
Now we are totally confused as I thought the alarms had to be placed in any rooms that housed a boiler or gas appliance.
Please could someone confirm this to me and if we do have to fund the purchase of these alarms, does anyone have any idea where we can get them at a reasonable price as they all seem to be over £20 each.
Thanks for any comments
