Guidelines for Property Managers and Owners of Rental Properties.

You are required by law to install and maintain smoke alarms in your rental property. The current requirements stipulated by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Act 1990 states that every smoke alarm in a Queensland rental property requires ongoing maintenance.

Ongoing maintenance includes:  

What is a photoelectric smoke alarm?

Photoelectric smoke alarms have the capability to detect visible particles of combustion. These types of smoke alarms are generally more effective. They respond quicker to smoldering fires and the dense smoke given off by foam filled furnishings or overheated PVC wiring. Photoelectric smoke alarms are also less likely to false alarm, particularly if located near a kitchen or bathroom.

Why do the smoke alarms need to be interconnected?

When one interconnected smoke alarm is activated, all interconnected some alarms are activated. This early warning increases the time occupants have to escape. The connecting of smoke alarms can be done wirelessly or hardwired.

Power supply options for smoke alarms – battery or hardwired?

Hardwired smoke alarms are connected to a home’s mains power supply, with a battery back-up. These are more reliable in the longer term and if the AC power fails in the night – the battery back-up is there.

9-volt removable batteries are legal until:

  • 1st January 2022 for rental properties and dwellings being sold
  • 1st January 2027 for owner-occupied residencies (unless the initial building approval required otherwise).

All replacement smoke alarms must comply with AS 3786-2014.

When do you need to comply by?

  • 1st January 2017: in new dwellings and substantially renovated dwellings
  • 1st January 2022: in domestic dwellings leased and sold
  • 1st January 2027: in all other domestic dwellings
