You must ensure that the required amount of smoke alarms are installed, that they meet Australian Standards and that they are correctly located in accordance with the legislation and Building Code of Australia (smoke alarm requirements).

Within 30 days prior to the start of each tenancy, lease renewal or extension, you must ensure that smoke alarms are tested, cleaned and found to be working. In addition, each battery that is flat or almost flat must be replaced.

You need to ensure that smoke alarms are replaced before they reach the end of their service life or replaced immediately upon discovering an alarm has ceased to function correctly.

Because of the complex nature of the Fire & Rescue Service Amendment Act and the Building Code of Australia as well as for legal reasons, most property owners choose not to undertake smoke alarm maintenance themselves. We maintain both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance for your peace of mind.

From 1 December 2010, you must have a pool safety certificate when leasing a property with a pool. Only licensed pool safety inspectors can issue a certificate, after they have recorded the certificate details on the pool safety register. You and others, such as real estate agents, can search the register.

You must make sure that the property always has a Pool Safety Certificate.  Certificates are valid for one year for a shared pool and two years for a non-shared pool.
