Colin Graham started this petition to UK Parliament

For the sake of safety and fairness, please read and sign this petition.

To bring a standard Three Bedroom Home up to the standard required by 2022 may cost as much as £400 excluding VAT.

Tis petition aims to call for a  VAT exemption on  the cost of installing  the Safety Equipment that will be Required By Law as a minimum standard. This legislation comes into effect in 2022 (Scotland) At this time, it is unclear what the position is in Wales, Northermn Ireland or England, but it is likely they will follow suit.

In 2022, all homes in Scotland will be required to fit Heat / Smoke Detectors. If you sell your house after this time and your home does not meet the minimum requirement, at the very least this will be noted on the "Home Report" or worse still, you may have to fit and pay for the equipment and pay for it yourself before you can sell your property

As the changes required are for safety reasons we do not seek exemption from the requirement outlined in the legislation. What we do want is the UK Government to be reasonable and make the materials and work needed to get our homes up to the standard required FREE FROM VAT.

So please act now and sign this petition before it is too late.
