    However, I have been in the situation where a LL has listed a property and then put it on the Market 1 month later and advised me personally he had intended to all along, as I was stuck due to work it took me 3 months to find suitable accommodation, it took him 7 months to sell. 3 months of 24 hours notice walk ins and weekly viewings when you KNOW you are going to sell the property is pretty crappy morally.
    I wouldn't have thought the 24 hours notice for viewings would be legal in the eyes of the TT. And weekly viewings for 3 months could be argued as against "quiet enjoyment".

    However standing up for your rights and ending up with your name on a TT order could sink your chances of finding another rental entirely.

      I had no idea at the time I had such rights. It was rather Harrowing at times and was a total, a.hole move. But I got out ASAP and life goes on. Perhaps a lesson for somebody tenanting.

        I totally agree. Finding that good tenant, that wants a "home" and does not believe the owner has a bottomless pocket to repair any damage they want to inflict on the property, my dream.

          Hi
          Here is a reply I got from my MP, National's Denise Lee ,when I emailed her to ask what National are doing to stop this bill from happening.

          Hi Richard,

          Thanks for getting in touch.

          National is committed to supporting landlords – part of our major housing issue is due to supply and demand. We are strongly opposing the bill and it is actually being debated this afternoon. To improve the rental market we know we need to encourage more landlords. I totally agree with everything you have said about infringing on property rights.

          Hon Judith Collins, our Housing Spokesperson, has recently confirmed that under a National Government we could expect changes to this amendment act but we are yet to release policy specifics. The purpose would be to encourage more landlords to get into the market and more people to own their own homes.

          There needs to be a balance between the rights of tenants and landlords, and we must make sure that the pendulum doesn’t swing too far either way.

          Be rest assured that this is top of mind for us and something we will be working hard on.

          Regards,

          Denise

            Sensible article from Stuffed:
            https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/opi...out-what-works

            Hard to believe they published it.

              What are the acceptable reasons?

              Selling up as vacant possession

              LL moving in

              what else is on the list?

              cheers,

                Major renovations or demolition.

                Reasons not allowed to issue 90 day notices for: Not paying rent, abusive/threatening behavior, ignoring tenancy agreement, illegal pets or drug use, intentional damage.... Sounds fair to me.

                  A shame the closing paragraph was not the opening one:

Oh, and forget a more punitive capital gains tax – countries with one of those have the same skyrocketing house prices as we've had.
                  As PC observed, it's astonishing that item got past Stuff's socialist sub-editors. Unless they allowed it to be able to fawn on those who they see as potentially the next crop of W'gton woodenheads, of course.

                    Really good article by Steven Joyce. Did you watch the short video - it was an interesting - but more so it was followed up with our PM in the news - not for doing her job of course, but for looking good in an outfit on cover of TIME.

                    Serious matters aside, it's great to see our PM building up her personal profile, I predict her next move will be to the UN and in time she'll be the first female Secretary General, and until then - it's likely to be 4 more years of Trump and 3 more years of Ardern.
