Heat detector in kitchen
I have been told that it is a legal requirement to have a heat detector in the kitchen - is this correct? I understand it would be for a new build, but I'm refurbishing and extending an existing dwelling. I will be redoing the kitchen but this won't be in the extension.
Any help on this I would be grateful.

You will require a heat detector in your kitchen if building control is involved or your rewiring your property.

strictly speaking you may not actually need one to satisfy regulations to the letter in some circumstances, but if having an extension and you wand it signed off by building control you will just have to fit one to keep them happy.
It is a good idea to fit one and now would be the easiest time to fit it.

A heat detector is required in a new build house or when relocating a kitchen
However building control surveyors are also asking for 1 when a kitchen is being extended
Hope this helps
