New Regulations for Landlords – Enter iCompli
New regulations for landlords came into action on 1st July 2019.
These include but are not limited to ceiling and underfloor insulation being installed where it is reasonably practicable. The insulation must comply with regulations and be safely installed.
A landlord must also provide one or more fixed heating devices that is capable of heating the main living room to 18 degrees.
Rental homes must provide ventilation in all habitable rooms and kitchens and bathrooms must have extractor fans which are ventilated to the outside.
Rental properties must have efficient drainage for removal of all storm water, surface water and ground water. Properties that have a space between the floor and the ground must also have a ground moisture barrier.
Draught stopping is a further responsibility that must be considered in the new Healthy Homes regulations including closing off all fireplaces if they are not in use.
These new regulations for landlords have caused much confusion. Interpretation is complex, leaving landlords and property managers baffled.
That is why iCompli have developed the new iCompli App. Read more in our brochure.
An “unlawful premise” means that landlords are at risk of a $4,000 fine and as a property manager you are at risk of $1,000 fine per property.

- Health and Safety at Work Act 2015,
- Residential Tenancies Act 2016,
