Some landlords may be eligible for subsidised insulation installed through the Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme.
The following conditions must be met:
- their tenant has a Community Services Card
- their tenant has health conditions that are worsened by cold, damp housing
- the rental house was built before the year 2000.
Landlords and other homeowners may also be eligible for help from their local council. A number of councils allow homeowners to add the cost of insulation to their rates and pay it back over about nine years.
