Healthy Homes

The NZ Healthy Homes standards set minimum requirements for rental properties. These are heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture and drainage, and draught stopping. Our report has been created for landlords and property managers. Furthermore, our report helps them assess the condition of their rental properties.

Why do you need Healthy Homes inspections?


  • All houses rented by Kāinga Ora (formerly Housing New Zealand) and registered Community Housing Providers must comply by 1 July 2024
  • Between 1 July 2021 and 1 July 2025, all private rentals must comply with the healthy homes standards within certain timeframes depending on when the new tenancy starts or is renewed
  • All boarding houses must already comply with the healthy homes standards, as of 1 July 2021.

There are minimum requirements for landlords to make their rental property livable for tenants, as per healthy homes NZ standards.

Landlords are responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of their rental properties. The standards help ensure landlords provide healthier, safer properties. Tenancy Services has defined the minimum requirements to meet the standard set.
