  1. Hi guys, I am writing to inform all other fellow landlords or agents/tenants of my recent experience and great concern with the “10 Year guarantee” battery life within the FireAngel ST-622 model Smoke Alarm. As a landlord of multiple rental properties I had purchased 4 of the ‘10 Year Thermoptek Smoke Alarm’ models and installed them within my properties to keep my tenants safe and to abide by the current laws in-place. I was horrified to discover on a recent inspection at one of my rental properties that after only 11 months (purchased 17/11/2018), two of the FireAngel ST-622 items did not work. In discovering this I informed another one of my tenants at a different property and asked if she could check the same alarms. She replied to inform me that both of the ST-622 models installed also did not work!!! For these items only 18 months had passed (purchased 09/04/2018). I have since removed the alarms and installed new, battery replaceable, alarms and contacted FireAngel directly with my concerns. Smoke Alarms should be tested regularly as we all know however I just wanted to post this information out to everyone to help inform others that this could be a risk in one of your properties should you have the same alarm. GET THEM TESTED ASAP! Thanks! :)
  2. Hey, I've been looking for a home security system. We already have CCTV cams, but I'm looking to have some real-time systems. I'd like to get something like intrusion security systems giving alarms or smartphone alerts etc. Recently, there was a theft attempt happened within my neighbourhood, so I thought not to delay it anymore. I had no idea about where to start and after browsing through a few company's websites, I've got this concept of intrusion security systems! So tell me guys, what are the best deals available for installing home security systems at present?! Expecting genuine replies as soon as possible. Many thanks.
  3. Hi, My insurance wants locks conforming to BS3621 or a 3 bolt multi point locking system. From what I understand this means a key lock on both sides of a front/back door lock. However, from a fire safety perspective a turning knob to lock from the inside is safer. I feel like I have to go with the insurance requirements but I can't help but feel my hand is being forced at the expensive of safety. Has anyone else managed to square this circle? With thanks S

  5. Hello, I am having work carried out on a property with the hope to rent it out when it is finished. One of the workmen have mentioned to me that if I was to let it out I should have a banister going up the stairs for safety reasons - if someone, especially a child was to fall over the edge I could be liable. The property currently doesn't have a banister as the hallway is very small, so the previous owners had it removed to create a more open space. Is the workman correct? Should I reinstall a banister? Thanks for any advice you could provide me with. Matt
  6. Hi, I am looking at renting out a two bed property that is currently gutted. I am looking at new interior doors and wondered if it was a requirement to have fire doors or whether the cheap moulded hollow doors are fine? If not a requirement, is it worth paying out for the solid doors anyway? Thanks for any advice. Matt
