Property Institute move a “Game Changer” – Really?

Property Institute move a “Game Changer” – Really?

What is known now, not over the “next couple of years”, is that there is in fact standards’ that must be meet.

The current Residential Tenancy 2016 amendment Act, Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act 2017 all provide the requirements for Properties and landlords to ensure a ‘Lawful Premise’.

Research over the past two decades has also provided the components of a healthy home.

The Minister of Housing is fully aware of the current program that can provide a “certificate of compliance” in the form of a Rental Warrant of Fitness.

The certificate provides a confirmation of the legal requirements of the premise and landlord related to a ‘Lawful/un-Lawful premise’.

It also provides a graded ‘quality’ standard of the premise that enables a tenant to decide the grade for which they are prepared/able to pay.

The premise will have a certificate that defines minimum standards have been meet.

The cost of assessment is minimal related to rental income.

The Healthy Homes Guarantee Act 2017 provides the requirements, the Certificate of Compliance /Rental WoF provides the evidence.

Are the Minister and Government failing to meet their promises by engaging in yet another delaying tactic by parties directly representing investors?
