Our Tenancy Laws are Changing – Does Your Rental Property Comply with the new Healthy Homes Standards?
If you’re buying a rental property, it’s your responsibility as a landlord to ensure it complies with the new Healthy Homes Standards.
These standards became law on 1 July 2019 to improve the quality of rental properties in New Zealand and to help tenants keep their homes warm and dry. As such, the healthy homes standards outline the minimum requirements for rental properties in five key areas:
- Moisture Ingress and Drainage
- Draught Stopping
Our healthy homes inspections assess your rental property’s current compliance with all five standards.
That way, you can get a clear picture of where your property stands, and which measures you may need to take to comply with the residential tenancy act.
