  • Labour Greens Govt. Acts To Further Increase Rental Costs For Tenants

    Read the BS Media release by Poto Williams here.

    As always, conspicuously missing is the matter of most consequence to tenants and LLs. viz.

    A significant portion of the costs associated with the delivery of the regulatory system will be met by third parties through fees and levies rather than being funded by the Crown.
    "Third parties" can only mean the end consumer - the tenant. Anyone else involved in supplying or managing residential rentals will - of course - be seeking full cost recovery of any additional costs - those nasty "fees and levies."

    Discussion paper

    Mixed model involving full cost recovery of some services, partial recovery of others and no recovery of 'public good' regulatory stewardship costs / initial establishment costs.

    This one from the link....

    • Making it so that if a tenant requests to make a “minor change” to their rental property, it is unreasonable and unlawful for a landlord to withhold consent for any change.
    is like everything they do - vague at best and what's minor change for one property owner may seem a big deal to another. Does the minor change need to be restored at the end of the tenancy? Who says it's minor and how are they qualified to say so? I can see rent rises going up more to cover restoration of these 'minor changes' at the end of the tenancy.

    E.g. - A tenant wants to paint the living area 'shocking pink' or black. Is this a minor change?

    cheers,

      We need to remember that Labour / Greens need "the poor." Without them, there'd be no one to vote for the socio-commies. Because of that, all of the current crop of clowns' policies which they claim are to advance the interests of 'the poor" are in reality designed to do the opposite. (And to remove their freedom of choice.) The more people who can be brought down to the poverty line, the more there are to vote for the reds / watermelons.
