smoke-detectorAside from the obvious duty-of-care to keep your tenants safe, maintaining smoke alarms is a legal obligation you have as a landlord. Smoke alarms are required to be correctly installed and should be maintained:

  • At the start of any new tenancy agreement
  • Annually (as per the manufacturers warranty)
  • At alarm malfunction

Property managers, handymen and general electricians are not necessarily experts in determining what is required. Utilising a professional service assures you have functioning smoke alarms installed that are positioned correctly for maximum protection.

What does the smoke alarm service involve?

A trained technician will visit your investment property annually and at each tenancy change (as required by law) to inspect all alarms. They check to ensure your property has the correct number of alarms, that they are located correctly and that they haven’t expired. They also clean and install new batteries and replace expired, faulty or damaged smoke alarms with new Australian Standard approved alarms. They then issue a report and a compliance certificate to be kept on file.

How much does it cost?

In conjunction with Smoke Alarms Australia, we offer a special price of $79 per property and $66 each for more than 3 properties with the same Landlord. This is the second year we have offered this service. Call your Tenancy Manager today for more details.
