    Existing as of which date?

    Quite a large loophole, they've got there. And two classes of tenants: new ones, who apparently deserve 'healthy' homes, and existing ones, who don't.

    My first overseas foray, 20s, I went and saw a (then) 2300yr-old aqueduct. Blew my mind, given that the oldest building in my home town (Chch) was at the time 150 years old.

    You may not be a troll. but you are trying to bulldoze ahead on imagined rights. As per your other post, you don't have a new tenancy. Therefore, if it was begun before July 2016, an insulation...

    Reasonably common in flatting situations for tenancies to be reassigned like this. There is no requirement for any of the original official tenants to remain on the contract. Let's say that Sally,...

    That's usually a function of your skill set and where you are on your journey. I am still in the small stage and have the skills and time, so I do my own, as do other people like me. Other people...

    There's someone on the FB page who's had very good experiences with Linkpeople. I've seen a horror story or two about refugees settled by The Salvation Army.

    I'd heard that it was quite common to use the 9kg bottles (and some are located in the kitchen, some in internal access garages) because they last for months and it's cheaper, as you're not paying...

    If you signed a 'variation of tenancy' and 'change of tenant', it sounds as though you took over from someone else, like a former flatmate or family member? If so, the Tenancy Agreement that the...

    I don't think you understand what a 'Safe and sanitary' report is. It is designed to let a council know that unconsented works are up to building code, so they don't need to take action on them.

    The thing is, this will mostly affect the high-entry markets like Auckland, Queenstown, Tauranga etc., where a lot of would-be FHB are priced out. In those markets, where yields are so poor, the...

    For any new tenancy starting after 1st July 2021, the LL has 90 days to get the place up to standard. I wonder if the same applies to this year's requirements?
