Auckland residents will soon be able to access more information about the health and safety of their home, with Auckland Council moving to include a home-fit check on a property's LIM report.

The Council has teamed up with the Green Building Council, which offers a HomeFit Certification, and from April, that information will be passed to the Council for inclusion on the Land Information Memorandum. 

Joining Kathryn to discuss the move are Andrew Eagles, chief executive of the Green Building Council and Sophie Heighway, Auckland Council's Sustainability Initiatives Manager.

*For anyone wanting to know more, there'll be a free webinar hosted by Sophie Heighway and Adrian Feasey from the GBC's Sustainability Initiatives team that will explain how the council is using its targeted rates scheme to improve homes and how LIM reports drive up awareness of lower carbon, healthier homes.
