Changes to the Act

The Healthy Homes Guarantee Act (No 2) passed into law in December 2017.

It amended the Residential Tenancies Act 1986, and enables the government to create regulations that will set new standards for rental homes. These are called the Healthy Homes Standards.

The standards aim to make rental homes warmer and drier, and deliver the greatest benefit to tenants without imposing an unreasonable burden and cost on landlords.
