When one reads this sort of thing, the WoF debate
sort-of pales into the insignificance it deserves.
I think that's a clever distraction in itself. There is only one issue: should residential dwellings have
a WoF? To split them off into single storey, multi-storey, apartments, rented, leased,...
My view is the most tenants do have control.
Control over what they do that precludes or predisposes mould.
I have seen mould on shower curtains and walls in a rental that is fully insulated....
Capital Gains Tax - The Lazy Solution
26 April 2015
Simply put - there are too many generalisations and unsubstantiated assertions, as they relate specifically to NZ.
That's a strawman logical fallacy. You asserted:
I did not ask for a...
You're wrong. Presently a rental-only WoF is a political football. It is not a recommendation, except
by council cash rangers, plus a few airheads and drongos who don't want it applied to all...
Interesting news snippet from one web site:
Christchurch Mayor Backs Rental WOF
24 April 2015
That last bit is code speak for "another potential Council revenue source."
Most of the examples of dampness / higher humidity (and mildew
consequences) that I've encountered have been caused directly by
the occupants living habits rather than by some structural defect.
If only it were as simple as that. :icon_twisted:
Ahhh, so it's a recommendation, then? That's different to:
In addition to your definition of habitable, please also define what is normal living.
Agreed. But is 'damp' the right word? In some cases, I suspect
'humid' would be better. High humidity sometimes helps as it
reduces evaporation of skin surface moisture, so making the
The worried wouldn't get anything else largely says it all.
You know that how? Or are you speculating?
Using Christchurch is a really bad choice. Most everyone knows that
there is no...
I'm no fan of Shonkey, but it has the look of a set up. If playful banter and 'horsing around' is
the usual daily behaviour pattern for patrons and staff, what's the big deal?
But it is a...
And nobody asked the question:
Did the tenant do something to make the hole?
Does the tenant have piles of rubbish outside?
Or any number of other, obvious question like
is there any alternative...
You need to read the terms and conditions which will be
there and might relate to poor or non-performance. Make
sure you issue the 30 day termination notice right now,
while you trawl through the...
DT = Disputes Tribunal.
Found your contract with the PM, yet?
Keys made mention of it, here.
And the consequences for LLs
and tenants & TT applications.
As soon as I saw this . . .
. . . I stopped reading.
As has been tritely observed before: nothing new here - move on.
22 April 2015.
Building and Housing Minister Dr Nick Smith has today launched the
new tenancy website, developed by the MBIE.
Drone House Media Release here: New tenancy website launched.
You now need to give fuller details of the contract between you and the PM. It's difficult to be helpful without them.
If the present PM wont agree, you will have to force the issue. I.e. Get...
By the way, between letter and lettee, it's a Tenancy Agreement.
Between you and the PM, it's a contract, or authorisation contract
to act as your agent. What are the contract terms in relation to...
A corollary observation.
Dishwashers usually have in-line filters. Mine
has two per hose. Some tapware warranties
are void if there's no filter where the water
comes in to the house.
Well, going by the recent announcement over the airpoints crash-landing
by BNZ, they have little concern for their customers or their costs.
(emphasis is mine)
I suspect many forumites will...
