Frequently asked questions

HomeFit was created by the New Zealand Green Building Council along with the housing sector to help people understand how healthy their home is. HomeFit is an inspection-based assessment of the health, comfort, energy efficiency and safety of New Zealand homes. It covers a range of topics that a panel of experts believes to be essential for a home to be liveable.
The assessor from G-Force is checking your property against a set of HomeFit standards that help create a warmer, drier and more energy efficient home. The HomeFit assessment looks at the property’s Heating, Insulation, Hot Water System, Ventilation, Mould Levels, Drainage, Draughts, Windows, smoke alarms, Lighting and Water Efficiency. All requirements of the standard have been created by a panel of experts in conjunction with the NZ Green Building Council.
A Healthy Homes Standards (HHS) Assessment is designed to establish whether rental properties meet the requirements of the Residential Tenancy Act HHS regulations. The HHS assessment is looking only at those specific requirements (Heating, Ventilation, Draught Proofing, Insulation, Drainage and Moisture Ingress). The HomeFit assessment looks at all the HHS requirements plus additional measures such as Water Efficiency and Lighting.
The HomeFit assessment service costs $344. This includes a full report and certification if your property meets the HomeFit standard.
If your property meets the HomeFit standard, then the property will retain the standard for three years. The HomeFit certification stays with the property, it cannot be transferred to another property if the owner was to sell the property.
If your property meets the HomeFit standard, you can advertise to potential home buyers or tenants that the property is HomeFit. This gives home buyers and tenants peace of mind that the home meets a minimum standard for a healthy home.
