Requirement to maintain smoke alarms

Posted 17/6/18

Owners who rent or hire their dwelling are required by law to maintain the smoke alarms. This includes ensuring the smoke alarm:

  • Is in working order;
  • is permanently connected to mains power;
  • is less than 10 years old, or has not reached its expiry date if one is provided on the alarm; and
  • If the use of a battery powered smoke alarm has been approved under the Regulations, the alarm has a 10-year life battery that cannot be removed.
