I rent a property from a letting agents and I arrived home from work to find a carbon monoxide detector has been fitted and info leaflets left on the kitchen worktop. I had not received any notification from them and I was at work when they decided to let themselves in without notification or permission. What steps should I take next?

I would ask them why? Was there a suspected gas leak i.e emergency access was needed? They still need to evidence that they have attempted to contact you. i would write to them advising that they are in breach of the law, trespassing and could face criminal charges! Change your locks (you are entitled). If you Google your rights to ‘quiet enjoyment’ it should explain your rights as a tenant.
