Insulation / Rental Properties

Are you a landlord or property manager? You can count on us to make sure your rental properties are compliant for insulation.

Let us take care
of your portfolio

Insulation is now compulsory in all rental homes. At Absolute Energy, we make compliance a breeze. Leave your portfolio with us and we’ll make sure your insulation is up to scratch.

Ceiling and underfloor insulation has been compulsory in all rental homes since 1 July 2019. The healthy homes insulation standard builds on the current regulations and some existing insulation will need to be topped up or replaced.

This is about providing a warm, dry, healthy living environment for tenants. It also increases property values and helps with home maintenance.

New rules for rental properties

What does this mean?

  1. The healthy homes standards include new requirements for insulation, which will take effect from 1 July 2021 for some rental properties, with all rental properties to comply by 1 July 2024.
  2. All private rentals must comply with the healthy homes standards within 90 days of any new or renewed tenancy agreements after 1 July 2021.
  3. Existing insulation must be dry, in reasonable condition, with no gaps, and meet minimum requirements.
  4. Landlords that don’t comply with the healthy homes standards may face exemplary damages through the Tenancy Tribunal.
