Revised Housing Standards

From the 1st July 2017, revised housing standards came into force under the guise of The Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2017. These regulations apply to the private & local authorities housing and are the first main changes since The Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2008.

The principal changes relate to fire safety requirements, provision of Carbon Monoxide alarms, proper ventilation, continued restriction on bedsits, vermin control responsibility with landlord and safety restrictions on window openings that are 1.4meres above ground.
