If you’ve either had an assessment done elsewhere or you’ve read up on the Healthy Home Standards, you may already know what needs doing in your property. We have a network of tradespeople across the country who have products and services tailored to meeting the exact specifications of the Healthy Home Standards. Get in touch and in most situations we’ll be able to provide you a quote for what is needed without even visiting the property.
Why you need a Healthy Homes assessment?
The Healthy Homes Standards (part of the Residential Tenancies Act) became law on 1 July 2019. They require all rental homes to comply with specific regulations regarding insulation, heating, ventilation, moisture ingress and drainage, and draught stopping.
All private rentals must comply within 90 days of any new or renewed tenancy after 1 July 2021, with all private rentals complying by 1 July 2024. All boarding houses must comply by 1 July 2021. All houses rented by Kāinga Ora (formerly Housing New Zealand) and registered Community Housing Providers must comply by 1 July 2023.
Landlords are responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of their rental properties. These standards will help ensure landlords have healthier, safer properties and lower maintenance costs for their investments. The standards will also make it easier for tenants to keep their homes warm and dry.

Healthy Homes Assessment
What is a Healthy Home assessment?
The Healthy Homes Standards are part of the Residential Tenancies Act. It requires all rental homes to comply with specific regulations regarding insulation, heating, ventilation, moisture ingress and drainage and draught stopping.
In a Healthy Homes Assessment our technicians will visit the property and complete a full external and internal audit of your property against the five standards of the Healthy Homes regulations. Once complete, you’ll receive a full report documenting any required work to bring your property up to compliance. You will receive quotes for fixed price work (for example bathroom vent installation) needed to bring the property up to compliance. You can choose to have our trade team manage the required work on your behalf, or you can implement and arrange it yourself. Once all work is completed, an updated Healthy Homes Assessment Report and Certificate is produced.
