From December 1 you must have a Healthy Homes Standards Compliance Statement in all new and varied Tenancy Agreements.
The Compliance Statement template from Tenancy Services is sadly not a simple checklist. It's a complex 13-page Tenancy Services Template with lots of detail. You'll find a link to the template at the bottom of the page.
Complying with all the standards comes into force for all new tenancies from 1 July next year with only 90 days to get work completed for new tenancies.
Doing Inspections right takes up to 90 minutes
The level of detail required to complete a Healthy Homes Inspection can take up to 90 minutes depending on the size and age of the home.
Why? For living room heating each wall, window and door needs to be accurately measured in the Tenancy Services Heating Assessment Tool including adjacent spaces not separated by a door. Each habitable space needs to be checked for size of windows, draughts from gaps greater than the thickness of a $2 coin. Gutters and drains need to be checked.
- Insulation Inspection (up to 15 minutes)
- Heating Inspection (up to 30 minutes)
- Drainage/Moisture Ingress Inspection (up to 15 minutes)
- Ventilation Inspection (up to 10 minutes)
- Draught-Stopping Inspection (up to 20 minutes)
We offer a Healthy Homes Inspection service and report to provide you with the information you need for new Tenancy Agreements.
