New legislation across New Zealand impacts on all of us who are in the real estate business. The Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) has required us all to look at our business and adopt practices and policies that protect all parties in a property transaction.


This is smart business and under the act EVES salespeople will look after the health and safety of all visitors to your property. This adds to the skill set needed where we require a good understanding of any known risks plus an expanded knowledge of property in general.


Some properties may have no risks to identify whilst others, such as a Lifestyle block, may have many risks that need to be explained and pointed out to all visitors.


The HSWA is just the beginning and signals a new way of thinking about health and safety across our industry. It’s not just about compliance, it’s about getting people home healthy and safe.


At EVES we can walk you through this process. Therefore the best protection you can have when selling your home is to engage one of our EVES salespeople.


EVES, more people selling more property.
