New healthy homes standards for rental properties

Updated: Oct 9, 2020

New minimum standards will make rental properties drier and warmer. The healthy homes standards, which become law later this year, aim to improve heating, insulation, ventilation and drainage, reduce moisture and stop draughts. If you are a rental investment property owner this may affect you.

Compliance timeframes

1 July 2021 – From this date, private landlords must ensure that their rental properties comply with healthy homes standards

within 90 days of any new tenancy.

1 July 2021 – All boarding houses must comply with the healthy homes standards.

1 July 2023 – All Housing New Zealand houses and registered Community Housing Providers houses must comply with the healthy homes standards.

1 July 2024 - All rental homes must comply with the healthy homes standards.
