Do these changes apply to Healthy Homes standards for rentals?

Yes, all new buildings that are consented will need to comply with the building code, whether they are rented or owner-occupied. Any retrofit work will also need to comply (considering just the areas that are altered or the building as a whole). The Healthy Homes Standard would be over and above this requiring a suitably sized heating device not yet required in the code.
