We help keep you and your visitors safe

how we help tenants

Our job at Safety Squad is to help keep you and your visitors safe in your home by ensuring the property you lease is fully compliant with the smoke alarm legislation. To do this, your real estate agency employs us to take care of critical and legislative requirements.

When your real estate agent is one of our clients, your property is enrolled into our smoke alarm service program and we take care of the rest. Read on for more on What We Do, Entry to Your Home and Our Technicians

We only issue an RTA Form 9 – Entry Notice to tenants to enter the property as allowed and specified by the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (the Act).

  • Entry Notices are issued to Tenants about the scheduled entry to comply with smoke alarm laws via email which is provided to us by your real estate agent.
  • The Entry Notice will note the date, time range and that our Technician/ Electrician from Safety Squad will attend the property.
  • If the scheduled date or time is not suitable to you, please contact us within 24 hours of the scheduled entry to freely change it for another day or time. We’ll do our best to accommodate your requests.
  • We are required to perform the legally required services to smoke alarms in your leased property at least once a year.
  • If you are not home when we arrive for the entry, the Technician/Electrician will use the keys supplied by your real estate agent. The keys are then returned to the agent.
  • We may need access to all rooms at the property so please help us provide easy access.
  • If you have a dog on the premises please restrain it for the duration of our entry.
  • For safety reasons, our technicians/electricians are required to always wear their shoes, however they will make sure they are clean before entering the property.
  • Our technicians/electricians will not enter a property if there is only a child aged 16 years or under at home by themselves. In this circumstance, we’ll reschedule the service and send a new Entry Notice.
