If it involves smoke alarms and it’s a rental property we interview the tenants and the owners. If the owner is not doing due diligence then we prosecute under Part 3 and if the tenant is at fault then it’s a Part 1. We feel that the owner should assume more responsibility than the tenant in certain cases. Now with the number of part 1 offences increasing we may start to issue more part 1’s. The Order system is too slow and I prefer to enforce immediately and rectify after. I have had good success with this system so far with only two cases going to actual trial most are resolved on the first appearance.
