Changes for rental properties lettings in New Zealand announced.

Changes in New Zealand mean that every rental property must reach specified insulation standards by July 2019 and have smoke alarms fitted.

Housing minister Nick Smith has announced new rental regulations which all landlords must meet. Only properties where it is physically impractical to fit insulation will be exempt.

The smoke alarms will become obligatory in July of next year but tenants will be responsible for replacing batteries and informing landlords of any defects that prevent the alarms from working.
