    ASB found out my rental company also invests in shares, and tried to pull that commercial rate crap on me a couple months back too. Though they offered me 9.99% so must see me as a better risk than...

    Excellent points, and it certainly is something that a lot of advisers don't seem to consider.

    I for one don't dislike standard companies. They've certainly got a place in some investors'...

    Little confused, is this a joke? Since you only pay a maximum of 15% of any income to the IRD, an early payment is always a good thing for cashflow.

    Absolutely not your problem to pay the first bill. If your relationship with the tenant is really good, maybe offer to split it with them and advise it'll never happen again.

    Well thank god for that. But where are you getting this? I haven't had any communication from the IRD, and am subscribed to the various bulletins.

    As an aside, surely they would still great a...

    As above.

    Or find a friend or relative who trusts you, with a lot of equity, and look for a loan against their property. But depending how picky the bank is being, they may not accept that as a...

    To my knowledge this isn't possible, but will wait to hear from someone with more lending experience.

    If anyone can do it, it'd be HSBC here in NZ. Have you tried talking to them? They're the only...

    My banks aren't giving out cash, but am aware of a colleague who just got $4.5k back from Westpac on a $550k loan - almost 1% still. Very impressive.

    You pay tax on your profits (rent received minus rates, bodycorp, insurance, repairs, etc) from the apartment at your marginal tax rate, between 10.5% and 33%. The rent you are paying elsewhere is...

    HSBC do not use brokers.

    Never used them myself, but I understand they focus more on the home-occupier end of the market than investors.

    Eh, 1cm, 5cm, 20cm - either way you're not going to miss the land much. I love the idea of painting it brightly. Maybe with awful clashing colours or glow in the dark paint. And of course, it's on...

    Wayne - you've oversaved. Congratulations for seeing this instead of continuing to plow ahead.

    As you'll know by now, property is not a truly passive investment, even with managers in place. It's...

    We've only been given possession by the courts a week or so ago, so options still seem open.
