Thanks for that Craig, that's great to know. Can I ask if you are in Scotland?
I felt £500 way way too much! I rent my flat through a letting agency as I'm overseas, so it's not that easy for me to get multiple quotes. I'll have to ask my agency to do it for me. Fingers crossed I can get it done for a reasonable price.
Thanks again, Polly... Read More

New regulations re Smoke and CO alarms

Hi Gary,
Thanks for your reply. These are the new regulations that I was emailed from my local council in Scotland:-

• One functioning smoke alarm in every room which is frequently used by the occupants for general daytime living purposes
• One functioning smoke alarm in every circulation space, such as hallways and landings
• One heat alarm in every kitchen
• All alarms should be interlinked

So, my good old battery smoke alarms are no use now. I think it is over the top personally. I only have a small one bedroom flat. From what I gather my £500 quote is way too much!
I will get other quotes done. Thanks again Polly... Read More

New regulations re Smoke and CO alarms

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on costs on fitting smoke and heat detectors to meet the new regulations.
I rent a one bedroom flat out in Scotland and I am currently looking into installing a heat detector in the kitchen, a smoke alarm in the hall and another in the lounge, all to be wired and linked together.
I have been given a price of £500 for the work to be done - does this sound about right? I can't believe it would cost that much! If anyone has experience and rough prices I would be grateful to hear from you.
Thank you in advance Polly... Read More
