INSULATION REQUIREMENTS FOR LANDLORDS


RESIDENTIAL TENANCY ACT INSULATION REQUIREMENTS FOR LANDLORDS

As of July 2016, landlords are responsible for ensuring that the insulation installed in their properties meets the new Residential Tenancy Act insulation requirements. If you do not comply with the regulations, you may be liable for a fine of up to $4,000.

To comply with these changes, you’ll need to declare the extent of insulation in your rental property on new tenancy agreements. As of the 1st of July 2019, the new laws require all rental properties to have underfloor insulation and ceiling insulation. (Some exceptions may apply. For more information visit www.mbie.govt.nz)

The insulation in your rental must be installed correctly. Otherwise, you could face insurance and liability issues for faulty installation. As a landlord, you are permitted to do it yourself.  However using an approved installer, like AAA Insulation can guarantee the performance of your installation.

INSULATION REQUIREMENTS FOR LANDLORDS

If your insulation doesn’t meet the minimum standards outlaid below, new insulation will have to be installed to the current NZS4246 insulation standards. To ensure the longevity of your rentals insulation, it is recommended that you top up your insulation to the NZS4246 standards regardless of current state.

AAA Insulation can help take all the stress and hard work out of this process and can guarantee the highest quality results. Contact one of our friendly team and we will happily discuss the insulation requirements for landlords if you have any questions.
