NSW Legislation changes are almost here...

What are the changes regarding Smoke alarms?

  • Ingoing Condition report now includes additional questions regarding Smoke Alarms
  • Alarms with removable batteries, the batteries must be replaced within 12 months of the previous replacement
  • Repair or replace a smoke alarm within 2 business days of becoming aware that the smoke alarm is not working or (b) cause the smoke alarm to be repaired or replaced

Being in Property Management, how does this affect you?

The tenancy reforms have turned up heat for landlords and tenants and will certainly see a Property Manager’s workload increase.

To ease the strain, why not let SATS take care of all your Smoke Alarm Compliance needs!
