Landlord -Tenant Law: Smoke detectors in the bedrooms of your rental property (Attorney Winston-Salem)

In Forsyth County, NC the local safety ordinances require you to have an operating smoke detector in every bedroom. This can subject you to liability and open the way for a disgruntled tenant to make a complaint with safety regulators.

Practice Tip: In your lease, make sure it states that tenant is responsible for keeping batteries in the smoke detector.

If you have rental property, then you need to take care of this promptly.
