Senior Operations Advisor

Tenancy Compliance and Investigations Team of Housing and Tenancy Services

Don’t let your property be non-compliant

One of the significant changes to the Residential Tenancies Act is that government has greater powers to prosecute landlords whose property breaches basic housing standards. It covers issues of dampness, sanitation, electrical safety, security, drainage and maintenance. The Tenancy Compliance and Investigations unit was established nearly three years ago and is expanding. The team monitors and enforces compliance with the Residential Tenancies Act 1986. They use a number of interventions and enforcement options to ensure that landlords comply with their obligations under the Act. The team is also able to act on behalf of a tenant in the Tenancy Tribunal and District Court. As Landlords we are running a business and Tenancy Services expects landlords to meet their obligations. The Team looks into situations such as:

  • Where the condition of the premises is a significant risk to people’s health or safety.
  • Where the landlord has committed a serious breach or has persistently breached the Act.

Landlords can be held to account, and can be required to change their behaviour and or be fined

COME along to find out all that is required for Landlords to meet their obligations
