Manses and domestic properties
Under the new Scottish Government regulations, every home in Scotland must meet the ‘Tolerable Standard' by having:
- Carbon monoxide detectors fitted within 1-2 meters of each gas-fired appliance including the boiler system
- Suitable interlinked fire detection devices fitted – one smoke alarm in the living room, one in every hall or landing and a heat detecting alarm in every kitchen.
All Church of Scotland manses and domestic dwellings which are occupied by ministers and their families or leased to private tenants must be compliant under the new regulations.
