    Who's resonsible for replacing fire alarm batteries?

    Good day Landlord Zone.

    So basic question, who is responsible for replacing batteries in fire alarms in Tenants property?

    Toilet roll
    Light bulbs
    Blocked sinks from their gunge
    Smoke alarm batteries

    All the T's responsibility.

    T's are to behave in a T like manner, which means it's their home and they need to be doing homely things

    What I say is based on my own experience and research - Please don't take as gospel without first checking the gospel yourself.


      Tenant is responsible for this.


        The landlord is responsible for the battery being effective when handing over property (so LL should replace if it isn't at start of tenancy).

        Tenant is responsible thereafter.

        If either tenant or landlord is quibbling about a battery suggest the other party end the contract: IMHO any clown not prepared to take basic simple H&S steps is someone you don;t want to be involved with: Others may hold alternative views.

        IMHO mains-powered, interlinked, with battery backup is to be preferred:

        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


          Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

          I am a Landlord.

          Cheers - Nick
