Smoke Alarm Compliance

In order to comply with legislation, all landlords must ensure their property is properly fitted with functioning smoke alarms. Failure to take every practical step to ensure the safety of your tenants and property may result in the dismissal of insurance claims, injury or loss of life.

During routine inspections, we are unable to check the age of smoke alarms or issue the compliance certificate that may be required by your insurance provider. Keep in mind that NSW legislation is likely to follow the much more stringent legislation that is already in place in Queensland, which will leave many rental properties under-protected.

We strongly recommend asking your preferred electrician or a specialist compliance company to regularly check smoke alarms in your investment property. Smoke Alarms Australia offer a service in which they carry out unlimited inspections to ensure your property is compliant with current smoke alarm legislation, including cleaning or repositioning the alarms, changing batteries, and replacing smoke alarms if necessary. They will then issue a compliance certificate for your property, and automatically schedule another check after 12 months to ensure continual compliance. The cost for this service is just $99 per year, which is fully tax-deductible and offers you priceless peace of mind that you are protecting your tenants and your investment property.

To help us ensure your property is compliant, please complete the attached form and return to our office as soon as possible.
