Property management and smoke alarms are good friends. Or at least they should be. Worst possible scenario: Inaction can lead to deaths and a stint in prison.
It’s a familiar story, even in developed countries, however. From one BBC report: “A property manager has been jailed for a year after two young boys died in a fire in a rented house with no smoke alarms.”
Installing smoke alarms is one step in taking responsibility. Checking to see if they’re operational is another. Or as relatives of the victims stressed: “Such a simple check could have saved the lives of our boys and we want to ensure that this does not happen to anyone else.”
In Australia, Jim’s Building Inspections offers quality inspections to avoid such catastrophes. Its goal: to ensure you or your loved ones or even tenants don’t become news stories.
