Insulation in rental homes – video information for non-English speakers

Dec 18, 2018 | Uncategorised

All landlords must have insulated their rental properties to the right standard by 1 July 2019, or they could pay penalties of up to $4,000 per property.

It’s really important to Tenancy Services that non-English-speaking landlords and tenants living in New Zealand are aware of this information so they don’t get caught out in July next year.

They’ve produced a 15 second video which is subtitled in 15 languages besides English, to help people understand what they need to do.
