Celia Burbery, General Manager for Residential Property Management, discusses some of the upcoming legislation deadlines for rental landlords.

We’re nearly there, 1 July 2021, the next big deadline date in the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act legislation. It’s been a busy seven months for the property management team with the passing of the 1 December 2020 compliance statement deadline, and other Residential Tenancies Act changes that came into effect from 11 February 2021 (you can view more on this here). As a reminder on the legislation, from 1 July this year, any new or renewed tenancy must comply with all healthy homes standards within 90 days.

The next deadline in legislation is Phase Three in the Residential Tenancies Act Amendments. Phase Three legislation changes are currently dependent on regulations being developed around family violence and tenancies. Once regulations have been developed tenants experiencing family violence will be able to terminate a tenancy without financial penalty, and, a landlord will be able to issue a 14 day notice to terminate the tenancy if the tenant has assaulted the landlord, the owner, a member of their family, or the landlord’s property manager. Hopefully none of these situations appear on our horizon. More information on the changes can be found here: https://www.tenancy.govt.nz/law-changes/

Thank you all so much for working with us to ensure your properties are compliant and that the changes in legislation go smoothly. We appreciate it hasn’t always been an easy road for any of us. Legislation changes should now settle and we will get on with managing your property.

Kind regards
