Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

I am about to let one of my properties to a couple who are both deaf. The property has two smoke alarms already but the new tenants would not be able to hear them.
I feel I have a moral obligation to install something like the Fire Angel W2 SVP 630 system which provides a strobe and a vibrating under-pillow pad. This is not compatible with my existing Dicon alarms, so it is going to be a relatively expensive provision as I will also have to provide two new smoke alarms.
Firstly, is there a legal obligation to do this?
Secondly, are there grants available?
Thirdly, is the expense tax deductible, as I am not replacing like-for-like?
