No more SMOKE detectors!

Our Texas legislature changed the rules for all LANDLORDS, not just those properties manged by professionals. House Bill 1168 officially changed the requirements of all leased properties from requiring smoke detectors to smoke alarms.  This change also included a location addition for smoke alarms to be placed into every bedroom, in each hallway that services multiple bedrooms and on each level of a dwelling.  This change is required to be implemented by Jan 1, 2013 and can not be waived by landlords.
