SMOKE ALARM COMPLIANCE
When selling a domestic property, property sellers are required to lodge a Form 24 Property Transfer with the Queensland Land Registry Office stating the requirements of the smoke alarm legislation have been met.
Some vendors are unaware that by ticking "Yes" on the Form 24, they are legally stating that the property has the required number of smoke alarms, they are correctly installed and located, comply with Australian Standards and are within their service life and in good working order.
How can you be sure you've provided the correct information?
Our easy and affordable Smoke Alarm Service is designed to help property owners ensure they are providing correct information in their forms and sale documents. Our team of Smoke Alarm Specialists will:
- Ensure the property has the required number of smoke alarms
- Ensure the smoke alarms are correctly installed and located
- Ensure the smoke alarms comply with Australian Standards
- Ensure the smoke alarms are within their service life
- Ensure the smoke alarms are in good working order
- Replace the batteries in the smoke alarms
- Provide a written report
We are also able to replace and/or install smoke alarms if required.
SMOKE ALARM UPGRADES
The Queensland government's new smoke alarm laws have placed additional requirements on rental property owners. Rental properties must have smoke alarms that meet the new standards before January 2022, and it will be illegal to sell a property that does not comply with the new smoke alarm standards after January 2022.

Many owners are choosing to upgrade the smoke alarms in their rental properties to the new standards, especially if existing smoke alarms have failed or are approaching their expiry date. If this is so with your sale property, or if you would like to make the property more attractive to investors, we can help you with a Smoke Alarm Upgrade.
As with smoke alarms, if you are selling a property, you are required to answer questions regarding safety switches at the property.
If you are selling a domestic property, you must first establish if a safety switch is installed for power point circuits, which must be declared on the standard sales contract and Form 24 Property Transfer. If you buy a property without a safety switch, you must install a safety switch for the power point circuits within three months of a property transfer. This applies to any transfer of domestic premises.
It is required by law that an electrical safety switch must be installed for all general purpose socket outlets, and the transferor must inform the transferee in writing about its existence.
Quickcheck's Safety Switch Test includes testing the functionality of existing safety switches that protect existing circuits and a report outlining which sub circuits are protected by a safety switch.

POOL SAFETY SERVICES
Quickcheck's Pool Safety Inspectors take the stress out of obtaining a Pool Safety Certificate for your property. We pride ourselves on providing the most efficient and professional service at the best possible price. Our friendly team can also make minor adjustments such as adjust gates and move climbable objects as part of the service, at no additional cost.
Let us take the stress and hassle out of obtaining a Pool Safety Certificate for your property!
When you are selling your property, either:
- you must provide a current Pool Safety Certificate to a prospective purchaser before entering into a contract of sale, or
- the purchaser can accept responsibility for obtaining a Pool Safety Certificate within 90 days after the date of settlement. However, you will need to complete a "Form 36 Notice of No Pool Safety Certificate" and provide a copy of this to a prospective purchaser before entering into a contract of sale and before settlement. A copy of the Form 36 must also be provided to the Queensland Department of Infrastructure & Planning.
If you choose to provide a Pool Safety Certificate, contact us to arrange your Pool Safety Inspection.
