The New Zealand Government has extended the deadlines for landlords to comply with the Healthy Homes Standards. Private landlords will have one more year to comply, making the final compliance date for all private rentals 1 July 2025, instead of 1 July 2024.
From July 2021, landlords who had new or renewed tenancies were required to make sure their rentals met the standards within 90 days. This has been extended to 120 days. The deadline extension was deemed necessary due to COVID-19 causing supply chain and delivery disruptions as well as limited workforce challenges. If you have any concerns about the healthy homes compliance date forthe property you are renting, reach out to your property manager who can assist you.
