Smoke alarms and insulation are now required in rental properties Both landlords and tenants have responsibility where smoke alarms are concerned. landlords who fail to comply with the law could be liable for a fine of up to $4,000 while failure on the part of a tenant could lead to a maximum fine of $3,000. landlords must ensure that there are smoke alarms in their rentals: within at least three metres of a sleeping area or bedroom door; on all levels of a multi- storey dwelling; and that any rented caravan has at least one working smoke alarm. They must also ensure all smoke alarms are in working order when a tenancy begins. It is the tenant’s responsibility to ensure that all smoke alarms are in working order, replacing batteries when required and informing the landlord if a smoke alarm is inoperable. They must not remove a smoke alarm or do anything that could impede a Long-life photoelectric smoke alarms have a ten year life. person’s ability to escape from the building in the event of a fire. If a rental has not had smoke alarms then those installed must have photoelectric ten-year batteries or be hard wired. as the batteries in existing smoke alarms need replacing (as per the manufacturer’s recommended replacement date) then photoelectric batteries must be installed. “The number of alarms to be installed in a rental property has been recommended by the n Z Property Investors’ Federation,” explains lloyd Manson, director of My Property Works ltd. “Most fires start in a bedroom rather than a kitchen, caused by electric blankets, [Edition datE] 1 Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District at the beginning of July, changes to the residential tenancy act came into effect with tenanted properties now required to be insulated and have working smoke alarms. 11 smoking in bed, or heaters placed near a bed.

While the Ministry of Business, Innovation and employment is responsible for overseeing this law, tenants can take any concerns about smoke alarms or insulation to the tenancy tribunal without retribution. to assist land owners in ensuring that their rental properties are compliant, My Property Works ltd can check rental properties and install long life smoke alarms where required.
