  Statement of intent

new Standards

So you’re a good landlord which is why you’re reading this.  You are trying to figure out the new Healthy Homes standards, and you’ve come across the “statement of intent.”

 

What the statement of intent means is that if you have assessed your property properly you have one year to install and fit the appropriate heating required.  We are very proud to show you the assessment tool we have developed which will send you a printable statement of intent that fits legal requirements.

 

There is just one watch out.  On July 2021 you need to have installed and fitted the correct heating.  Because the “statement of intent” is exactly what it says it is.  You still need to have installed a heat pump or alternative heating for your tenant by 21st July 2021.  The statement of intent gives you a little grace period.

Sleep

A comfortable sleeping environment is essential for a healthy sleep, and your overall health and wellbeing throughout the day. The ideal sleeping temperature is 18.3C which does seem quite cold to some. Which is why we struggle so much to sleep on a hot summers night.

No Draughts

Draughts aren’t good for anyone. They are like wind in the home, leaking the heat and creating a irritable environment. A comfortable home has no draughts, and that is what Varcoe specialises in. Comfortable homes.

Healthy Homes

The healthy homes standards became law the 1st July 2019 in New Zealand. For some it came in very quickly and it was hard to plan and organise for. So that is where I thought Varcoe could help you.
