Answer: As you are aware, the law requires a property owner to have smoke alarms serviced within 30 days of the start of a new lease. To date, our Contractors have not been denied access for the purpose of servicing smoke alarms because all our tenants understand the importance of this legislative maintenance be carried out. If for any reason a tenant finds themself as a high risk or in self-isolation, at the moment, we will liaise direct with the tenant and the Contractor and arrange another alternative date ensuring we remain within the timeframes. Our Contractors have their own strict protocols in place to minimise the risk to themselves and the tenant.
