Fines after July 1st


The 1st of July deadline dawned on us fairy quickly and it is important all landlords understand what that means when a new tenancy begins.

As you may already know after July 1st 2021 all new tenancies and renewals in rental homes will have to fully comply with the Healthy Homes standards within 90 days of the start of the tenancy or renewal.

Landlords can face a fine of $7200 if they fail to comply with any of the Healthy Homes Standards (whether the property is non-compliant on one or all of the standards).

There is also a fine for landlords providing a false or misleading statement or information. This has gone up from $500 to $900.
