New Tenancy Regulations to come into effect on 1st July 2016

The Minister for Building and Housing, Nick Smith, announced last July there would be changes to The Residential Tenancies Act. One of these new regulations would mean that landlords must install Longlife Photoelectric smoke alarms into their properties. This is great news for tenants and landlords as the statistics show that 89% of fatal domestic fires occur in rental properties in NZ.
