Is your home Homefit?
It is important for the safety of your friends and family to ensure your home is ‘Homefit’.
Homefit is an inspection-based assessment of New Zealand homes created by the New Zealand Green Building Council with housing professionals. Homefit helps people to understand how healthy their home is and support them to make necessary changes.
Homefit offer a free online self-assessment tool so you can check if your home is healthy.
This tool was designed for landlords, tenants, and homeowners. Just answer a few questions and receive great advice that aligns with the Healthy Homes Standard. This was introduced by Government for rental housing in July 2019 to improve the living conditions of renters in New Zealand. These standards set out new requirements for heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture, drainage, and draught stopping.
