HomeFit Rental Checks
HomeFit for Healthy Rentals
We are kiwis helping kiwis. We believe healthy homes create happier, healthier tenants and more durable houses.
Compliance with Healthy Homes Standards kicks off from 1 July 2021. As you sign new Tenancy Agreements the property must meet the 5 Healthy Homes Standards within 90 days.
We now use NZGBC’s independent and audited HomeFit tool to help compile our Healthy Homes Standards reports.You'll save time with an automated, authoritative report available within 48 hours of the assessment. Then we can get going and have all your heating, ventilation and insulation work done fast as!
Our NZGBC HomeFit Report.
HomeFit is a tool developed by the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) with the housing sector to help property owners understand how healthy their houses are. HomeFit is used to assess homes and prepare a comprehensive report on compliance, with the Healthy Homes Standards and extra steps owners can take to be truly “home-fit’.
The benefits of using HomeFit is that:

The HomeFit report following your Brightr property assessment is thorough and succinct with easy-to-follow recommendations. Fully automated, the data is uploaded quickly and has automatic sizing of images to create the report instantly. For Brightr this means we are able to provide the report and related quotes in 24-48 hours of the assessment. For work completed by Brightr we can also provide updated reports quickly and easily.
Independently trained & audited.
We’re licensed users of the HomeFit app and all Brightr HomeFit assessors are trained and tested by NZGBC. All HomeFit reports are independently audited and backed by the NZGBC.
The HomeFit report shows your property’s level of compliance with the Healthy Homes Standards and also three additional areas of importance to NZGBC: curtaining, shower water flow and the presence or not of mould. Properties that meet these criteria will also get HomeFit Certification at no extra cost as a marketing tool when renting out or selling the home.
