PREPARING YOUR PROPERTY
LEGISLATION & COMPLIANCE
SMOKE ALARMS & RCD’S
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.
MINIMUM SECURITY REQUIREMENTS
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.
BLINDS & CORDS
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.
