As a landlord you have specific responsibilities in regards to smoke alarms and a duty of care to your tenants in a number of ways. There are rules confirming landlords responsibilities for the installation and maintenance of smoke alarms in tenanted properties. Landlords need to meet the legislative requirements and building codes applicable in each state or territory Australia wide.

In our experience many properties that we inspect for the first time are found to be non-compliant with either no functioning or expired smoke alarms.
SATS has a very strong commitment to a best practice approach, installing only the best product and providing ongoing support to ensure that you are fulfilling your duty of care on an annual basis and at the start of each tenancy.
