Hi Dennis,

Where in Australia is your rental property located? This will determine how often inspections are required.

Smoke Alarm compliance legislation across Australia makes it mandatory to have your smoke alarms inspected, and a certificate of compliance provided. This must be provided by a qualified person.

I await your response, before advising further.

Kind regards,
