As a landlord, you have a legal responsibility to ensure your property complies with state and federal legislation surrounding smoke alarms, safety switches (RCD’s), pool barriers and corded blinds prior to and/or during any period of tenancy.
WEIGHING UP THE RISKS
Due to liability risk and the complexities surrounding compliance it is recommended by insurers and legal commentators that Landlords should not consider doing this themselves; in this instance it is recommended the Landlord contact their insurer for further advice.
