    I don't know if the rules differ from place to place, but if you rent, you are able to call on a repairman yourself and then charge it to the landlord/owner

    I would contact your local rental board to find out exactly what you can do! I hope you have lots of blankets for tonight!

    That's something that sux about living in New Zealand. Houses are not required to have heat. So glad we no longer rent! Hope you are able to get your situation fixed, @meandmy243.

    The whole country. The only requirement is that there are electrical outlets so you can go out and buy a space heater and plug it in. Lol. Or some use small gas heaters (can you say fire hazard??). Many still use pot belly stoves and wood burners. We had central heating installed in our house down south. Damned expensive to run. Up north we put in a heat pump (it's an air conditioner that also produces heat) and have double glazed windows. Can still get cold in some rooms in the winter.
