    WFT!? All the statistics I've ever heard say the exact opposite - that the bulk of tenancies are ended by the tenant. And I'm pretty sure the tenancy compliance guy who spoke to our local PIA last...

    Have you considered a Joint Venture? This is where you team up with someone who can finance the project, then later you split the profits (how you agree, doesn't need to be 50:50).

    Personally, I think you'd be fighting an uphill battle.
    There are lots of relocatable houses out there and quite a few are free.
    Why would they take yours, when it will cost them extra tens of...

    That poster posted elsewhere which made it clear that what he was describing was exactly what I said above. He did not have a new tenancy, he took over when the previous head tenant moved on.

    I said nothing even remotely of the sort.
    What I said was that MBIE are very clear that tiny homes are not caravans.

    I actually agree with them - whacking wheels on something built to be...

    I have property in a thermal area of Rotorua. Installation costs for heatpumps here are through the roof, as the external unit has to be taken to pieces, the parts coated and it all put back together...

    If it's as we understand it, then it's really stupid. If there is an open doorway between two rooms, while some heat escapes, the second room stays a lot cooler than the heated room.
    I would...

    A few MBIE decisions have come out that hold tiny houses to be buildings, whether they are on wheels or not. However, they also told councils to bugger off, when the councils wanted the tiny homes...

    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...

    Just remember that if you buy property out of Auckland that you can buy more than one or two.
    If you buy cashflow positive property, the rents will also be used to determine serviceability and the...

    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.
