In simple terms if you are a landlord you need to ensure that your rental property has a minimum level of insulation. The amendment requires all rental properties to have underfloor and ceiling insulation by 2019. Plus you need to provide details of your property's insulation on new Tenancy Agreements.
The purpose of this is to have all renters in New Zealand living in warm, healthy homes. The Residential Tenancies Agreement (RTA) sets out those minimum standards for house insulation and explains your obligations as a landlord.
Pink Fit are experts at everything insulation related and have lots of experience with finding the right solution for New Zealand homes. They can assist with planning your ceiling insulation and floor insulation to meet the requirements of the RTA.
Leading independent research shows that glass wool is one of the most effective insulation materials available. Pink® Batts® has been New Zealands trusted insulation for over 50 years.
