Changes to Scottish Law on Smoke and Heat Alarms - FEB 2022

As of February 2022, the Scottish laws surrounding smoke and heat alarms have changed. All homes across Scotland must include interlinked fire alarms, this means that if one is set off, then all of them will go off. This ensures your safety by ensuring you can hear an alarm from any point in your home. 

The responsibility in adhering to these new regulations falls on the home owner. This means if you are in rented accommodation, your landlord is responsible. Similarly, if you are living in council housing, there are efforts to ensure that your home meets these new regulations.

There has been funding allocated by the Scottish Government for older and disabled homeowners who have low incomes.

For full information on the change to the laws, visit the Scottish Govt. website dedicated to the changes.
