The Healthy Homes initiative requires all New Zealand rental properties to comply with the five components of the Healthy Homes standards. Unsure if your Wellington property is compliant? At Oncore, we offer comprehensive Healthy Homes inspections, and if your property needs any improvements, we’ll help you get them sorted.

What is a healthy home?
The goal of the Healthy Homes initiative is to ensure all New Zealanders have a safe and comfortable place to live, even if they’re renting. The focus on rental properties is particularly important as they’re often in poorer condition than owner-occupied homes.
“Cold, damp, and mouldy” are terms often associated with Wellington homes. They’re also things a Healthy Home shouldn't be. Proper ventilation and drainage, two of the Healthy Homes pillars, will help combat the damp nature of Wellington homes. Not only will this benefit your household, but it will also benefit your property.
Well ventilated homes are warm, dry, and less susceptible to moisture damage, moulds, dust mites, and mildew. In addition, having appropriate drainage in place will help prevent roof rot and, ultimately, needing to replace your roof. So while protecting your family or tenants’ health is of the utmost importance, protecting your investment isn’t a bad bonus.
What is a Healthy Homes Assessment?
In short, a Healthy Homes Assessment requires inspecting a property to check if it complies with Healthy Home Standards, and if it doesn’t, to evaluate what improvements are required.
Healthy Homes compliance considers five elements; heating, ventilation, insulation, draught stopping, and moisture drainage and ingress. Here at Oncore, our contractors are proud to provide Healthy Homes Assessments across Wellington, as well as take care of any improvements necessary to get your property up to standard.
