To help make their homes warmer and drier, Auckland ratepayers can access financial assistance up to $5000 through our Retrofit Your Home scheme. This is repaid via a targeted rate over nine years.
What we are proposing
We are proposing to change this scheme to require a New Zealand Green Building Council HomeFit Assessment for all new applications of more than $2000.
The HomeFit assessment will help homeowners make the best decisions about upgrading their home.
The HomeFit assessment costs $260 (excluding GST) and this will be added to the amount of financial assistance provided.

Changes have been made to the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 which will come into effect at various times over the current and next financial year.
We are working through the implications that these changes may have on our various voluntary financial assistance schemes.
