The REIV and Building Commission have identified it is the landlords responsibility to maintain smoke alarms in residential rental properties.
By law, every house must have smoke alarms fitted in accordance with the Building Regulations and every smoke alarm must have its battery replaced and be correctly cleaned and tested at least once a year.
In addition, smoke alarms must be replaced every ten years as identified by expiry dates on the unit.
Here at Harcourts we take the worry away!
