Smoke alarms are compulsory in all rental properties

These should be fitted on escape routes, such as hallways, lobbies and stairwells, on all levels.

On levels containing sleeping spaces, the alarms should be located in, or within three metres of every sleeping space, and be audible to sleeping occupants on the other side of closed doors.

9-Volt battery powered smoke alarms are acceptable, and should have a readily accessible test facility.

Assessment, installation and regular checks

Goodwins offer a full smoke alarm initial assessment, installation and ongoing testing and maintenance solution for $95+GST per year.
