In the first four days of the new insulation law, there were 40 complaints and 484 calls to the Tenancy Tribunal about uninsulated rental properties.
With a potential $4,000 payout to tenants who dob in their landlords, there’s a definite incentive for tenants to complain.
We’ve talked about this insulation deadline many times before, and if you’re already compliant you can rest easy. However, we keep banging on about it because we know there are still landlords out there who have not insulated their properties or had insulation statements organised.
Most owners already have this organised and for those that own apartments we have completed the necessary paper work for you already.
