Last Chance for QLD Rental Properties to Upgrade Smoke Alarms

HOME / Blog / Last Chance for QLD Rental Properties to Upgrade Smoke Alarms

As the end of the year quickly approaches, these are the last weeks to ensure your property has had its smoke alarms upgraded. To avoid a loss in rental returns from 1 January 2022, Queensland landlords must have installed interconnected smoke alarms in residential rental properties. 

Changes Occurring 

The state-wide changes taking place require rental properties to upgrade and service their smoke alarms to be photoelectric and interconnected. Rather than individual alarms throughout the home, an interconnected system means when one alarm is activated all alarms property wide will go off. This ensures more time is available for residents to be alerted and evacuate in the case of fires or emergencies. These changes have been introduced to protect Queenslanders and ensure their safety, particularly with fire season and storm season approaching.
