smoke-alarms-coolum-beach-real-esate-property-managmentQuestion- Do I need smoke alarms in my rental property?

“Yes” Said Kate Tomba, Investment Manager at Coolum Beach Real Estate

“Landlords must ensure their rental property is fitted with the required number of working alarms complying with Australian Standards and installed per the Building Code of Australia. Additionally the Qld Fire and Rescue Service Amendment Act.  Under this legislation landlords must test and clean each smoke alarm within 30 days prior to each tenancy change or tenancy renewal.  Landlord must replace batteries that is flat or almost flat and must replace the smoke alarm before it reached the end of its useful life. The legislation prohibits the transfer of this responsibility to the tenants. ”

“At the Coolum Beach Real Estate office we use Smoke Alarm Solutions for a moderate annual fee to ensure your home is compliant at all times.”
