New insulation standards
Ceiling and underfloor insulation must be installed, where reasonably practicable in all rental properties by July 2019. It may seem like that is a long way away, but it’s important to make a start by assessing your rentals’ insulation requirements so you know what work needs to be done.
Please note that all tenancies started after 1 July 2016 must have a statement attached to the tenancy agreement giving the tenant accurate information on the status of the property’s insulation. Harcourts property managers are arranging checks for properties to ensure they are compliant.
