    if the young upstart can get rid of the great satan of nz politics

    he'll have my vote for life!

    Meanwhile, data compiled by the Parliament library reveals the total amount of anonymous donations New Zealand First received in 2017 dwarfs that of

    all other political parties combined.

      Yes, it might be the case. But people in the fire line try to survive, e.g. politicians follow steams of lobby groups and voters. Is there any kind of accountability? A new govt hides saying – that’s why the previous govt…!

      On the other hand can a business owner act like this saying I can’t because of govt changes?
      As long politicians are not bound to their election promises and started govt projects not been completed under new legislation – how can that debacle change?

        assign the tenancy to a dodgy tenant and it seems the accommodation provider, LL, has little say about it.
        That was my reading too. Compared to the 90 day thing that would be a far far worse outcome for any LL

          some of these "tenants from hell" would be an absolute disaster to deal with once they tricked their way into a tenancy

          the gov doesn't want to house them and tenant advocates would be falling over themselves to excuse their behaviour

          could you even sell the property without taking a massive hit if they refused to reform and couldn't be shifted from their destructive ways?

          they say "there'd only be a few" but there are only a few murders each year

          and that doesn't mean we don't bother with strong laws to discourage and deal with them

          what will be the owner's loss in dealing with terryS

          does terry need even stronger protection?

          or do owners!

            I posted the below on another thread, reposting here ...

            Assignment seems to refer only to fixed term tenancies, but since these turn into periodic under the proposed policy, landlords are stuck with the assignees unless other termination causes are met. I see what the government is trying to do here - allow tenants to get out of a FTT without (much) penalty. In practice, if a landlord declines a proposed assignment the existing tenants will have to take a case to the Tenancy Tribunal to get it overturned. That will be interesting, even amusing actually - what will count as reasonable or unreasonable. That will need clear guidelines and is not going to be black and white.

              I think you are 100% right Donna, I cant see any government correcting the median house price which is the only way to get kiwis into kiwi homes, no matter how low you make the interest rates. Its a correction or nothing.

              And to be fair Jacinda wasnt voted in and she didnt want the role.

              I can see economics forcing our hand though in 2020, I just dont know how long a correction would take to reach the rest of NZ which is still going up. Always like a Tsunami, Auckland being the epi centre lol

                how can you expect a correction

                when new houses cost more than old houses

                and there's no more empty land in the places people want to live?

                further to that if you think that;

                - building standards will continue to rise

                - wage costs will continue to rise

                - nz continues to be considered a better place to live than most

                how can prices not slowly start to rise again?

                to bring prices down you'd need;

                - too many existing houses

                - cheaper new houses, built to lower standards?

                - more land, loaded with free infrastructure, to suddenly appear where jobs were plentiful and people wanted to live

                clearly more than jacindamania and fairy-dust is needed for that!

                  An unspecified "correction" is as vague a prediction as it gets.

                  Perhaps a career as an econ-o-mist beckons?

                    another story showing they would be killing the golden goose

                    by making it even more costly to house the delinquent
