The rental market is still quite active, given that things traditionally slow down at this time of year. There are currently just under thirty properties for rent in Blockhouse Bay showing a good supply. A rental property in good condition and appropriately priced will still rent well in this market.
This week the Government has brought into law compulsory smoke alarms and insulation in rental properties. Insulation needs to be in place by July 2019 and I will discuss this in more detail in the next issue.
As at July 1, 2016 all rental properties must have a minimum of one working smoke alarm within 3 metres of each bedroom door. Long life photoelectric smoke alarms are required where there are no smoke alarms and also when existing smoke alarms are replaced.
There is more in depth information regarding smoke alarms on the government website –
