With neither the British or Scottish governments currently able to commit to an easing of international restrictions anytime soon, Scotland is set for a ‘Staycation’ boom this summer.

If you are a landlord, or run a holiday let in Scotland, it is imperative that you meet current fire safety regulations. This means that as a minimum, for all private rented properties, (and for all other residential properties by February 2022) you should ensure that:

  • One smoke alarm is installed in the room most frequently used for general daytime living purposes.
  • One smoke alarm is installed in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings.
  • One heat alarm is installed in every kitchen.
  • All alarms should be ceiling mounted and interlinked.

Where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance, such as boilers, fires (including open fires) and heaters, or a flue, a carbon monoxide detector is also required, although this does not need to be linked to the fire alarms.
