REINSW's position on key issues

Smoke alarms

Since 2006, smoke alarms have been mandatory in those homes and other shared accommodation buildings where people sleep as specified in the Environmental Planning and Assessment Amendment (Smoke Alarms) Regulation 2006. Property managers (as agent for the landlord), landlords and tenants have specific responsibilities in regard to smoke alarms.

Not meeting al smoke alarm compliance requirements can have serious consequences for tenants, landlords and property managers.
