New legislation came into action on the 1st July 2014 in regards to maintaining a minimal amount of security on doors, windows and lighting.
What is required?
– The Entry door is to have either a dead-lock or a rated security door tested to the relevant Australian Standards
– All other external doors are to be fitted with either a dead-lock, rated security door or patio-bolt (usually for sliding doors)
– All opening windows require a lock/latch (no key required) or a rated security screen
– A outside electrical light near the entry, must be able to be switched on/off from inside and illuminate the entry.
Lessors will have to bring their properties up to the minimum standard by July 2015.
