2022 smoke alarm legislation

Nearly a decade on from the nations deadliest house fire in Slacks Creek, where 11 people were killed, the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service have a warning for landlords:

Smoke alarm legislation is changing in 2022 for all Queensland rental properties. The new legislation requires the use of INTERCONNECTED Photoelectric smoke alarms that are smarter, will alert your tenants earlier and will save lives.

As a landlord you have a legal obligation to ensure your property complies by 01 January 2022 or run the risk of it not being eligible for lease.

If you are a property manager it is your duty to ensure your landlords are made aware of their obligations under the new legislation.
