Landlords Told To Keep Property Standards High

Christchurch rental properties are under the microscope as Investors are snapping up properties on the market for sale.

New Zealand Property Investors are always on the look out for good investments and Christchurch has presented many a good deal that owner occupiers are less keen to take on.   As a result these properties need to come up to standard says Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health – Source

Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey said landlords should not exploit the rental shortage in the city to offer unhealthy homes to tenants.

“Investing in a rental property brings certain degrees of responsibility [and] landlords need to ensure the dwelling is well-heated, well-insulated and well-ventilated.”

He said potential tenants needed to make sure properties would stay warm during winter.

Standards have certainly risen over the years and responsible property investors look after their investments.  There are the oddball investors that will and do take advantage of a shortage of supply of rental properties to hold back on property maintenance but the vast majority of landlords nationwide are responsible and professional.  At PropertyTutors we educate on property maintenance.
