Did you know that all properties that are leased or sold in Queensland must contain smoke alarms that meet new guidelines by 1 January 2022? 

Watch the video to see how the legislation effects you.

Owners must ensure that smoke alarms are:

  • Photoelectric,
  • Hard-wired or have a non-removable 10-year lithium battery,
  • Interconnected via a wire or radio frequency, and
  • Installed in every bedroom, hallway and on every leve.

We can assist you in meeting this important deadline.
