Industry Bulletin 167 – Amendments to smoke alarm regulations for dwellings made available as short-term rental accommodation

The State Government is progressing initiatives to improve regulation around the short-term rental accommodation (STRA) sector, including the implementation of a register for STRA properties. These initiatives take effect from 1 July 2024.

Industry Bulletin 167 provides information about consequential amendments made to the smoke alarm provisions of the Building Regulations 2012 (the Building Regulations) as a result of the new STRA regulations. These take effect on 1 July 2024 and put beyond doubt the requirement for owners to install and maintain smoke alarms in dwellings made available as STRA.
