Insulation Requirements – We Can Help!

Hannah Norton

Learn about insulation requirements so you can get it sorted before the July 2019 deadline.

Tenancy Services has just launched a new information campaign asking landlords; Does your rental home meet the new insulation standards?

We know it may feel like the July 2019 deadline is still a while away but its important landlords make a start by assessing the insulation requirements in their rental homes.

The summer months can be a good time to do this between tenancies or when carrying out other maintenance jobs on your rentals.

Arranging an assessment with insulation professional is a good start to understand what you need to do to get your rental up to standard. They can also provide you the paperwork to provide with tenancy agreements to demonstrate your home meets the requirements. If retrofitting insulation is necessary it’s a good idea to do this sooner rather than latter to get it sorted before the July 2019 deadline.

We are doing our homework on companies that will provide the best value for your money while providing an excellent service. We also keep a record on the newly required ‘R’ rating. We currently need to provide a statement of insulation on all new Tenancy Agreements but from July 2019 we have to state what the ‘R level as well.

Did you know you may be able to add the cost of the insulation to the rates every year instead of having to pay the full price at installation?

We can manage all of this for you, just give us a call on (09) 636 7355.
