What Are You Being Asked To Do?
If you rent out a house/townhouse or unit/apartment to tenant in Queensland, you must take action to be smoke alarm compliant from 1 January 2022 (while there is still time and resources available to you).
Under Queenslands's new law, smoke alarms must be installed in every bedroom and on every storey (in specified locations).
All smoke alarms must be:
- Be powered by 240 volt or 10 year lithium battery
- Be interconnected to each other
- Have 10-year tamper proof battery power
- Be photoelectric
- Must comply with Australian Standard 3786:2014

Why you Should Act Now?
If you're a Queensland landlord who hasn't yet transitioned your residential investment portfolio to comply with safer Queensland Government smoke alarm legislation - time is running out. Queensland's 566,000 rental property owners will be required to implement additional smoke alarm measures from January 2022.
If every Queensland landlord waits until January 2022, there may not be enough qualified tradespeople to install them all before the cut-off date!
That's not the only concern within the industry. A Queensland Fire & Emergency Service (QFES) survey revealed 51% of Queensland landlords are unaware of their smoke alarm obligation (so you can expect a last minute rush along with potential price rises as the deadline approaches).
People are dicing with danger (and non-compliance) by buying smoke alarm of inferior quality, either online or hardware-store bought. Over a third of properties upgraded by local electricians and small providers have proven non-compliant by Smoke Alarm Solutions (even if the electrician convinced their client they knew what they were doing).
