Regulation of Methamphetamine Contamination in Rental Housing - Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga - Citizen Space (

Closed 10 Mar 2023

Opened 22 Nov 2022


Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga – Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is currently consulting on proposals for regulations to manage methamphetamine contamination in rental housing.  

It is currently unclear what to do when residential rental premises are found to contain methamphetamine residue. Specifically, it is not clear at what level residue becomes a problem which should be addressed. This is confusing for stakeholders, and has led to disproportionate responses to low levels of methamphetamine residue.  

Regulations are needed to provide certainty around what to do when residential rental premises are contaminated with methamphetamine.
