I wasn't sure where this belonged, so I threw it in General. We are about to rent out our PPOR as an IP and are in the final stages of getting it ready. My question relates to something I was thinking about while walking around doing a few jobs today. The house is set in to a slope (sloping down from the backyard to the street) and that means there is a set of stairs to enter the house, and a front porch/verandah. The stairs have a hand rail, but the verandah only has posts to support the roof and there is a drop of about 1.8m over the front. The house was built in the late 80s, so not sure if requirements have changed over the years. So, long way of getting there, but to rent the place out, do we have to fit a hand rail and make the area safe or does the tenant rent it on an 'as is' basis and the onus is on them. Is there some kind of waiver we should get signed and would that even hold up? Hoping someone may have had similar issues or a property manager may be able to assist. Thanks for any help.
