Chances are your project will take longer than your builder estimates and much longer than you think. Prepare for delays, frustrations and minor irritations. Hopefully, that’s all you’ll have, and if you plan well, these will be minimised.

For the first time in New Zealand, Kiwis can simply check any home to see if it is warm, safe and dry, thanks to the launch of the new project, called HomeFit.

HomeFit empowers Kiwis to find out the health of a home in two ways.

Firstly, there’s a free online check which all Kiwis can use to examine their own home, or a home they’re looking to buy, sell or rent. The online check is available at homefit.org.nz and contains around 20 questions before providing a tailored report on the home, detailing how warm, safe, efficient and dry it is. And, if it isn’t, how to improve it.

Secondly, there’s an independent appraisal, carried out by a trained assessor. The assessment looks at damp,mould, insulation, heating, ventilation and other key areas and, if a home passes, it will be awarded a HomeFit stamp, showing that it is warm, dry, safe and efficient.

HomeFit is being launched by the New Zealand Green Building Council. It is hoping thousands of keen house-hunters make use of the online check during open homes, and that sellers and landlords use HomeFit to make their homes healthier, and prove it with a HomeFit stamp.
