Potential sources of carbon monoxide in the home

The National Landlords Association have warned tenants that they must make sure that their landlords are protecting them in their homes.

In the winter months more care and attention is needed, last year a lot of properties had water damage because landlords hadn’t told their tenants how to switch off the water supply when there was an emergency.

Tenants should also make sure that their landlords have given them advice on what to do over the Christmas period. The tenants may want to go away so they need to know how to use their central heating system properly.

The chairman of the National Landlords Association, David Saludbury, has urged landlords to properly insulate their properties and become more energy efficient.

“A higher energy efficiency rating, which is measured by an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), may also benefit the landlord by making a house more attractive to prospective tenants,” he added.

A step that could save lives is checking the carbon monoxide alarm in the property. Safety charity CO – gas safety has told tenants to get this checked if they haven’t already done so.
