By now you will have been made aware of the new regulations with respect to Smoke Alarms for residential rental properties. These regulations took effect on the 1st of July 2016.
At the very least there must be a smoke alarm installed in the hallway (or similar) no further than 3 meters from any bedroom door, and for two storied dwellings, smoke alarms must be installed on both levels. This statutory requirement will help to provide not only safety for your tenants but also protection of your property.
We have photo electric smoke alarms with internal 10 year battery's available at only $45 +gst for all new inspections booked, includes installation.
Be prepared for the random checks that are currently been undertaken.
This will also keep you compliant with your insurance by undertaking inspections and you will also be compliant with the new tenancy regulations. Double win!
