Healthy Homes Assessments

Healthy Homes Standards

The new Healthy Homes Standards (HHS) require all rental properties to meet certain standards. Depending on the type of property these requirements must be complied with between the 1 July 2021 and 1 July 2024.

The purpose is to significantly increase the quality of the New Zealand rental properties and make sure they provide a healthy environment for tenants to live in.

These standards cover heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture and drainage, and draught stopping.

Compliance timeframes

1 July 2021 – From this date, private landlords must ensure that their rental properties comply with HHS within 90 days of any new tenancy.

1 July 2021 – All boarding houses must comply with the HHS.

1 July 2023 – All Housing New Zealand and registered Community Housing Provider houses must comply with the HHS.
