Got questions? We have answers
Yes. If you’re a rental property owner, you’re required by law to replace old smoke alarms. Interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms are now mandatory, because of their increased safety benefits: when one unit alarms, the other units alarm, giving residents extra time to escape.
Owner-occupiers must replace all alarms that don’t work or are more than ten years old. While there are a few years until you’re required to have documented compliance, you will need to replace your alarms with interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in your properties. The protective benefits are so much greater than the cost of the alarms that there’s no reason to wait.
The new law encompasses photoelectric smoke alarm installation. Also known as an optical or photo-optical smoke alarm, photoelectric alarms are better able to detect more kinds of fires, like smouldering fires. They work by ‘seeing’ combustion particles which then start the smoke alarm beeping. Photoelectric smoke alarms are less prone to false alarms, and are better at alerting occupants to fire sooner to give them more time to escape.
The new laws also provide for certain types of battery. For smoke alarm systems that are hardwired, they must be connected with 240V; otherwise, they must be powered with a ten-year lithium battery.
Landlords need to test and clean each smoke alarm in the dwelling 30 days before the start of a tenancy in a domestic dwelling, and ensure that each alarm is tested and cleaned once every twelve months.
While you don’t need to be a qualified or licenced to manage your smoke alarms, testing and cleaning by professionals can provide certificates of compliance for maintenance that uphold your professional reputation as a rental owner, and support your sale if you’re a seller.
Failure to take every practical step to ensure the safety of your tenants and property may result in the dismissal of insurance claims for damage, personal injury or loss of life.
Your obligations involve keeping each smoke alarm hardwired with 240V or powered with a ten-year lithium battery, ensuring they’re interconnected, and testing and cleaning them every twelve months. If you’re unsure whether your smoke alarm systems are installed in accordance with the Building Code of Australia and Australian Standards, or that your documentation is properly lodged and certified, it’s best to rely on professional management that’s available through Coronis.
