There has been some talk about window and balcony safety from Fair Trading over the past 12 months. The deadline is approaching for all landlords to make sure their property is compliant and has window safety installed. The deadline is March 2018.
It is frightening to know that over 50 children each year fall from windows or balconies.
If your property is managed by a strata company, this should be underway for you. If you are unsure, check in with your strata manager and ask the question.
If you own a freestanding home that has a second level or higher, it is time to review your safety features in your property and update where needed.
All information for landlords and tenants can be found on Fair Trading NSW
