Property Smoke Alarm Information

The What, Why & How for Smoke Alarms

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!

We use Smart House to maintain the smoke alarms in your investment for a low-cost fee of $99 per annum!

They will attend your property to check your current smoke alarms, install any necessary additional smoke alarms and attend the property if there is a fault with any smoke alarm - all under the all-inclusive price.
