It is a landlord’s responsibility to maintain a smoke alarm in a rental property. And a tenant’s responsibility to notify a landlord or agent if the alarm is faulty within 48 hours.
VIC – Property Managers need to give a tenant an information fact sheet on all the different types of smoke alarms and how to maintain them. An electrician needs to service them every 12 months when a property is being tenanted. Smoke alarms must be hardwired alarms in properties built after 1997.

QLD – All properties in Queensland need to have interconnecting photoelectric smoke alarms in every bedroom and all hallways connecting to bedrooms.
TAS – It is the tenant’s responsibility to make sure a smoke alarm is functioning throughout the whole tenancy. They must let the owner, or the property manager know as soon as the alarm is not working, and the owner is responsible for repairs.
NT – Smoke alarms need to be in every dwelling including movable dwellings like caravans. Homeowners and Landlords need to test them every 12 months.
What maintenance is required for smoke alarms?
If the smoke alarm has a lithium battery enclosed it will only need replacing every ten years, with the smoke alarm. If the batteries are 9v lead or alkaline they need replacing every 12 months. Every six months it is a good idea to dust the alarm to rid it of dust. Once a month you should also test the batteries by holding down the test button for up to five seconds until it beeps.
