    Landlords have been given more time to include details on healthy homes compliance in their tenancy agreements

    Landlords have been given more time to include details on healthy homes compliance in their tenancy agreements


    Healthy Homes Standards became law in July last year - with the phasing in of rules around heating, insulation, and drainage.

    The next step is to have landlords provide tenants with a statement of compliance - but COVID-19 has hampered their ability to do so by next month.

    Associate Housing Minister Kris Faafoi says the deadline's now been extended to December - as further delays are likely in Alert Level 2 due to backlogs.

    The extension won't affect any of the dates by which rental properties have to comply with the standards.
