From $199+GST, manage contamination in your rental property
1: A Landlords obligations under Residential tenancies act
Residential tenancies act S45(1)(a) considers renting a meth-contaminated property to be a breach of the property owner’s obligation to provide premises in a reasonable state of cleanliness. You can still be held responsible even if you didn't know methamphetamine was present in your property. Get a meth test on your rental and avoid the liability.
2: Say No to meth use and manufacture in your property
By having pre & post tenancy meth testing on your property, you are decreasing the chances that meth may become a problem for you. Regardless of what the "safe level" of meth may be there will still be expectations on the level of meth that is "allowable" in a property. This means at some point, you may be responsible for significant costs to test and clean the property. MethSafe are firm believes that prevention, is much better than the cure.
3: Landlords Insurance with meth cover
By implementing a meth management plan, you are dramatically increasing the chances insurance will pay out on a meth claim. It is common for insurers to request meth testing of a property as proof a non-disclosed underlying issue does not already exist. If you can clearly show that meth damage has been caused during a valid tenancy within the cover of your premium you would have a far better chance of having your claim accepted and access to between $25,000 & $30,000 of cover.
4: Attract high quality, long term tenants
Meth Managed rentals are more likely to attract families and long-term tenants due to the increasing demand for healthy rental properties. By outlining that the property meth tested after each tenancy, you encourage good quality tenants who are more likely to look after the property, pay their rent and leave the property in a reasonable state.
