What is healthy homes?
'Healthy homes' are the new government standards which became law on 1 July 2019.
The healthy homes standards introduce specific and minimum standards for heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture ingress and drainage, and draught stopping in rental properties.
All private rentals must comply within 90 days of any new or renewed tenancy after 1 July 2021. All private rentals must comply by 1 July 2024. Landlords have a responsibility to ensure their rental properties meet the healthy homes standards. The standards help ensure landlords have healthier, safer properties and lower maintenance costs. It also means that it will be easier for tenants to keep their homes warm and dry.
