What's my HHS compliance date?

This week's question comes from Cliff:  

My property is not yet fully HHS compliant, how should I fill in the compliance date on the HHS Compliance Statement?


 

Actually, we expect this to be a common situation many landlords find themselves in. There are several deadlines for the Healthy Homes Standards (HHS) between now and July 2024. While the HHS Compliance Statement is now compulsory for all new and renewed tenancy, the first deadline for actual compliance isn't until July 2021 (i.e. HHS compliant within 90 days of a new or renewed tenancy). It is not entirely inconceivable, between now and July 2021, that the landlord wouldn't know when the property will become compliant. Still, if there is a new or renewed tenancy, the HHS Compliance Statement will have to be filled out.

Our take is at least until July 2021, if your property is not already compliant to HHS that you could leave the field blank. Once July 2021 passes you should have a better idea when your property will become compliant and be able to amend the statement accordingly. 

If you would like more help on how to fill out Tenancy Services' HHS Compliance Statement, be sure to follow this step-by-step guide on APIA TV

If you are a member of the APIA or another Property Investors' Association, why not use the NZPIF's HHS Compliance Statement Builder as an easy tool to get your paperwork in order. Remember, the actual compliance should be the hard part of HHS, not the paperwork.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
