You May be at RISK
Unfortunately, simply having a manual, some documents and an email trail may not be sufficient for the requirements of the Healthy and Safety at Work Act. It takes a bit more than you might think.
We have found it is very common to find most residential properties under a property management company are non-compliant, and Property Managers and their companies may be at risk of prosecution should things go wrong.
Whilst the Residential Tenancy Act determines property managers as the landlord, the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 determines that they are contractors to the landlord. This subtle difference places additional legal obligations on both parties. Property managers and landlords not fulfilling their roles adequately could and has led to prosecution in the courts. With our guidance you can overcome the uncertainty of whether or not you are meeting your obligations
