Every landlord in Australia has certain obligations to ensure their rental property complies with the relevant State and Federal smoke alarm legislation. We are the experts in our field. Mitigate your risks of non-compliance – personal injury claims, no insurance coverage or more serious compensation claims.
Landlords must comply with Australian Standard 3786-1993 by ensuring their rental properties are fitted with the required number of working smoke alarms installed in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) Part 188.8.131.52.
Furthermore, different legislation applies to the different States and Territories. However, Landlords (or through their agents) must test and clean smoke alarms. Batteries that are flat or nearly flat must be replaced immediately. Any smoke alarm nearing the end of its service life or deemed faulty must also be replaced. These duties, under the relevant legislation, are the responsibility of the landlord (or agent) and not the tenant.
