Operational Smoke Detectors – A Must In Every Home!

Landlords have the duty of care to ensure smoke alarms are kept in a good working order during the life of the tenancy agreement. The Building Commission of Victoria prohibits the transfer of this responsibility towards the tenant. The Real Estate Institute of Victoria advises its members; “Ongoing maintenance and inspection of smoke alarms needs to be treated seriously, more seriously than leaving it to the tenant.”

FPG makes sure all properties comply with current smoke detector legislation. The Building Commission Regulations and Australian Standards 1993, AS 3786 are consulted for all properties.

Our service can remove the responsibility of smoke detector maintenance from the agency, despite the landlord’s decision to accept or reject the service.

Annual maintenance/service of smoke detectors includes:

A fully comprehensive maintenance service, to ensure smoke detectors are in good functional order, within its manufactures expiry date, and positioned as per required locations.
