Locks & Home Security
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to wake up in the morning, to realise your wallet, purse, computers, iPads, other devices and personal items are missing? That someone was in your home whilst you slept. This is not a pleasant morning wake-up experience.

For Landlords - New minimum levels of security

On 1 July 2013, changes to the Residential Tenancies Act 1987 and the Residential Tenancies Regulations 1989 commenced. The changes include a list of the locks and devices that must be installed in leased premises to make them reasonably secure. For more information go to www.commerce.wa.gov.au and refer to their fact sheet.

Lessors had until 1 July 2015 to comply.

Suitable repairer

The Residential Tenancies Act 1987 defines a suitable repairer as a person who is suitably qualified, trained or, if necessary under any written law, licensed or otherwise authorised, to undertake the work necessary to carry out the repairs.

Licensed security installer

The Security and Related Activities (Control) Regulations 1997 provides that only a licensed person is authorised to carry out the activity of, for remuneration, installing locks prescribed for the purpose to prevent unauthorised entry to a place.

These requirements are regulated by the Western Australian Police and are in place to provide appropriate security and safety to the public. The WA Police have a vigorous process to ensure only suitable people are cleared to hold this licence. The fines in relation to unauthorised contractors carrying out this work are substantial.

Beware: Many people doing this work are not licensed
