The Government has placed Auckland at Alert Level 3, and the rest of country at Alert Level 2, in response to three cases of COVID-19 in the South Auckland community.
The restrictions remain in place from until midnight Wednesday but may be extended.
What this means for all Accessible Properties tenants in Auckland:
Maintenance services will be provided using safe work practices and tenant consent. Urgent work will be given top priority. You will be called before anyone visits your property.
Tenancy inspections will be carried out by phone or delayed.
Transfers will commence using Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines and timing and management of these moves will be discussed with you. We will commence new tenancies using MOH guidelines and management of these moves will be discussed with you.
For tenants in the rest of New Zealand:
Inspections, maintenance, repairs and other work will continue as normal (please be aware this may change if Alert Levels are raised).
