New RTA insulation requirements for rentals

All rental homes are required to have ceiling and underfloor insulation where practicable by 1 July 2019. The insulation must comply with the new regulations and be safely installed.  Good quality insulation helps make your rental home healthier for tenants and more energy efficient. A landlord who fails to comply with the law by 1 July 2019 may be liable for a penalty of up to $4,000.


An Insulation Statement needs to be provided on all new tenancy agreements signed since 1 July 2016. The Statement must state whether there is insulation, where it is, what type and what condition it is in.


Avoid the mad rush in 2019 and call us now on 0508 238 837 for advise on the new insulation requirements, insulation statement or to book an assessment.
