Fire Levies: We need your help

Many will be aware of the proposed changes to fire levies, which would see a minimum 40% increase in order to fund FENZ (Fire and Emergency New Zealand). This increase would have a direct effect on insurance premiums for commercial property owners.

Property Council is currently collecting property insurance data to demonstrate the impact the proposed fire levy will have on our members. The more information we have on our member’s insurance portfolios, the better we can advocate for an alternative funding system. All information received will be treated as strictly confidential and any feedback to DIA will be anonymous.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Katherine Wilson.
