    Does anyone know of a could book on tenancy law, making good tenancies, procedures etc?

  • #2
    I started with a great book - "The New Zealand Landlords Handbook" by Frank Newman & Suzi Bilosh. It spoke in non real estate english and was really easy to follow when I knew nothing. I still use it for some forms & quick reminders. It may be out of print, but try http://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/T...perty/2697611/.

    I'd get the landlords pack from the tribunal now for free. http://www.tenancy.govt.nz/landlord-pack. I also live on the tenancy tribunal site (as you may have guessed) to get their forms, letter templates etc.

      Also keep an eye on TradeMe for a copy.

          I've got a 'Tenancy Practice Manual' by Scotney Williams -- my edition is possibly a little out of date now, but you could see if you can get hold of an updated edition from him.

          Scotney did a workshop for APIA last year (?)... (if not, end of 2007) that Barry Bridgeman organised.

          Scotney's stuff is always relevant and up to date as far as Tenancy Tribunal stuff is concerned... worth checking out.

            I went to one of Scotneys seminars for property managers recently.
            I really did not think he was all that up to date on what was happening in the tribunal. He presented well though but the exercise cost me over a $1000 for two of us to go. I do not think I got value for money out of going. Every time I asked him a nasty tricky question he avoided answering it.
            I guess I should not have tried to see if he knew how to manipulate the system like I do.
            Just my own personal view.

              I found it interesting that he didn't know where the TT got the "authority" for continuances.

              Unfortunately, where else can one get training?

                Thanks for your comments. PropertyTalk is ALL ABOUT each of our "own personal view(s)" -- it's a discussion forum!

                I missed Scotney's workshops this time around so can't comment specifically, but I have seen speakers in that tricky situation where someone asks you publicly for advice on a strategy you would be more comfortable sharing privately.

                I like Scotney, he's a specialist I wouldn't hesitate to ask for advice, and I recommend his manual (which was the original question) - Peter

                  I have had his manuals for many years.
                  Again no stategies and how to operate the OE process so you win more times than you lose.
                  I guess it is like sex. No point in studying it to learn about it.

                    The Tauranga Property Investors association has an agreement with Scotney that any of the members can call him for free any time. He also came along and and gave a talk. If you are a member of a PIA, see if they have the same agreement & use it. If you're not a member, from the prices quoted above, it may pay to become one. I also got his CD for $5 from the Association, which I keep in my computer and use a fair bit.
