Council Homes

Some council homes in the Stirling area have missed the deadline for new interlinked fire alarms to be installed.

However, officers have said the authority’s housing stock is well on its way to compliance.

Under new Scottish Government legislation every home in Scotland must have: one smoke alarm in the living room or or the room you use most; one in every hallway and landing; and one in the kitchen. All smoke and heat alarms should be ceiling mounted and be interlinked.

If you have a carbon-fuelled appliance – such as a boiler, fire, heater or flue – in any room, you must also have a carbon monoxide detector in that room, although that does not to be linked to the fire alarms.

While the new law came into force on February 1 this year, the Scottish Government has said there is “flexibility for people to fit the necessary alarms within a ‘reasonable period’ after this deadline”.

They add that, while “no one will be criminalised if they need more time, and there are no penalties for non-compliance”, they would “encourage” everyone to install the alarms as they can help save lives.

Older and disabled homeowners on low incomes may get help with costs but otherwise homeowners and landlords are responsible for the costs. These are estimated at around £220 for an average three bedroom house (based on using alarms you can install by yourself without the need for an electrician).
