As a tenant, you might well be aware that by law, your landlord must provide smoke detectors in your rental home. You might not be aware, however, that it is a dual responsibility to ensure that they remain in working order.
As a tenant, it is your responsibility to ensure that you test your alarm on a monthly basis. If you’re not sure how to do this, follow this guide for battery-operated smoke detectors.
Whilst the large majority of smoke detectors are battery-operated, some do run on mains. These smoke detectors are tested in the same way, but if no siren begins or only a weak sound is emitted, your landlord or letting agent should be contacted immediately to ensure the detector remains in working order.
