We wanted to give owners advance notice of changes to locks and security that will be needed due to the update of the Residential Tenancies Act (1987); these changes will come into effect at some point this year. While no specifics have been released, we do know that the new laws will require properties to have minimum levels of security installed. The minimum security will relate to door locks, window locks and exterior lights. Owners will have two years after the new laws begin to make the necessary updates.
To get an overview of all changes proposed in the revision, have a read of the document released by the Department of Commerce
If you have any questions about the changes, please get in touch with your property manager.
