The Law In Queensland
Functional smoke alarms aren't just "nice to have", they're actually a legal requirement. From 1 January 2022, if you rent or are selling a property, you're required to install interconnected smoke alarms. If one of these alarms goes off, they all go off, giving you and your family time to get out safely.
If you're an existing homeowner, you'll have until 1 January 2027 to install these alarms. They need to be photo-centric, less than 10 years old and operate as a hardwired or battery-powered alarm with a non-removable 10-year battery. You must ensure smoke alarms are installed:
- on every storey
- in every bedroom
- in connecting hallways
- between bedrooms and other parts of the storey
- in the most likely exit paths
If you have any queries about your legal obligations, get in touch with us today.
