Rental Warrant of Fitness

Description

Get the health and safety of your rental checked by Sustainability Trust.

We're a partner in the voluntary Rental Warrant of Fitness scheme which is being rolled out by Wellington City Council and the University of Otago

Bringing the whole house up to standard - not just insulation - is good for your tenants, makes your property more attractive to renters, and reduces maintenance long-term. 

We recommend: 

  • Downloading the self-assessment app (from Google Play or iTunes) to see if your home is likely to pass.
  • Or going through the criteria on paper. You can find the list here, and read the assessment manual which explains all criteria in detail.  
  • If you think your property will pass, book us for a professional assessment. They take about one hour and cost $250. 
  • If your house fails, make repairs and improvements, then rebook. The second assessment is free if done within six months.

For more information see the Wellington City Council website or to book an assessment call us on 0508 78 78 24, option 1.
