Healthy Home – Upcoming changes


The Government has announced upcoming changes to the healthy homes standards, in response to feedback from the rental sector. These changes are expected to take effect in April 2022.

Changes will be made to the heating, ventilation, and moisture ingress and drainage standards.

The purpose of the Residential Tenancies (Healthy Homes Standards) Regulations 2019 is to make rental homes warmer and drier for households who rent in Aotearoa.
