Smoke Detectors: What Indianapolis Landlords Need to Know

By Devon L. Hicks on Oct 28, 2018 10:00:00 AM

In previous blogs, we’ve discussed the various obligations that you have as an Indianapolis Landlord.

On a very basic level, you’re required to provide your Tenants with a safe, clean, and habitable dwelling.

Drilling down into the safety aspect is where smoke detectors come in.

Yes, smoke detectors.

Those circular, plastic gadgets that we stick on our ceilings and don’t give a second thought about until the batteries start to die which causes that annoying, incessant chirping.
