The installation of mains powered smoke alarms and at least two residual current devices is mandatory for all residential homes within Western Australia. Mains powered smoke alarms & at least two RCD’s (protecting all power and lighting circuits) are required to be fitted before offering the property for lease.


The lessor is responsible for the property having a minimum level of security in place.

The minimum security relates to door locks (eg deadbolts/deadlocks on all external doors), and requirements for window locks and exterior lights.


It is essential that Owners ensure blind/curtain cords or chains on their rental premises are safe for children. Under law, a Owner has a duty of care to tenants, as well as anyone the tenant invites into the property, and must ensure the premises are safe to live in. If a child dies or is injured on the rental premises as a result of a blind/curtain cord or chain injury, the landlord may be sued for negligence. Even if the tenants do not have children, a court could consider that it was reasonably foreseeable that the tenants may have children visiting the home from time to time.


Landlord insurance covers you for tenant-related losses. Things like loss of rent due to a tenant breaking their lease or being evicted, or damage caused to your contents by tenants, like drink spills on carpets. Other insurance may not cover these events, and very often, the bond won’t be enough to cover the associated costs.


There are specific laws in WA that mandate the installation of a safety barrier/fence to enclose private swimming and spa pools. The laws are intended to protect the safety of young children by restricting their access to the area containing the swimming or spa pool.

Property managers Kylie Hall done such a fantastic job looking after us

I just want to send you a quick email to commend one of your Property managers Kylie Hall. Kylie has been my property manager for nearly a year now and has done such a fantastic job looking after us all. When there were problems such as no gate and no internet she went out of her way to get these issues resolved quickly and efficiently. Kylie should be congratulated an recognized for her hard work and fantastic customer service. Kind Regards,

Empire estate has replied me on New Year’s Day

I'm surprised by how actively Empire estate has replied me on New Year's Day and took their time out to explain to me what went wrong with my strata complex and the strata levies. They help me to understand how levies work and especially making suggestions, even though they do not manage the strata complex. It is hard to find genuinely good people who care. I do highly recommend Jamie Horner, Salina Ng and her team for taking the time out of their busy schedule to explain what went wrong. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated team in helping those in need. I wish I have known them earlier.

Empire management and follow-up is well above what we experienced.

Our body corporate has been with Empire for the past few years and compared to the other agents their management and follow-up is well above what we experienced with our previous Body corporate company.

Empire will always be on time to send me reminders, email updates and what is happening

Empire is much better than other agencies. Empire will always be on time to send me reminders and email updates on what is happening. There is no need to chase them, unlike most strata managers.

far more proactive with the management of our property than previous Strata Managers

As Strata Managers you have certainly been far more proactive with the management of our property than previous Strata Managers.
