Substandard properties

Buying a substandard property

If an order has been issued for a substandard property this information must be included on:

The PIR will show:

  • if a property has been issued with an order or notice under the Act
  • the dates that apply to the order or notice
  • any rent limits placed on the property as a result of substandard defects
  • a list of the defects.

Orders may be registered on the Certificate of Title.

Where to get information

Potential purchasers can search the Register to find details of properties subject to an order or notice.

Any person can request and pay for more detailed information for a fee prescribed in the Housing Improvement (Fees) Regulations 2017.
