    .... And if a new poster gets it too close, ban them too for surety.

    Does it really matter? I'm sure he'll be back.
  3. If that were a valid argument, why not extend it...

    If that were a valid argument, why not extend it to power, internet, Sky TV? Perhaps not Netflix as that's mobile.

    There's a fixed daily charge on the power bill, it's just usually hidden inside...

    I have all my properties managed, but remember last time I DIY'd that this was an issue. The tenants had an understanding they'd pay an extra $20 per week for water. But over time the water usage was...

    Better yet, stop people owning shoes entirely. The government should own all shoes, and you should only be able to get a new pair by proving you wore the old pair out through good old fashioned hard...

    Is it not arguable that hoarding gold increases the gold price, making it viable for gold miners to expand production, creating multiple high and low skilled jobs, and enriching shareholders of the...

    Strictly, "year to Sep" should always mean 12 months. As distinct from "year to date Sep" which would be either calendar or financial. Not always made clear, of course.

    I won't weigh in on the...

    I also read desperate, but then thought that doesn't make sense and re-read.

    Your response added useful commentary to the thread regardless, though.

    Absolutely. And I'd be pushing for a credit for the approximate overcharged interest-on-interest to make it right!
  10. This assumes the market is not already priced...

    This assumes the market is not already priced near the maximum rents it will bear. I've no idea whether it is or not, but given the stories you hear it feels like it.

    If tenants as a whole group...

    I wonder if it's strictly illegal to prefer a particular race? Clearly if they are not willing to accept anyone else this would be a major issue, but a preference? Is it racial discrimination of any...

    In fairness, there really should have been a question about rents under National.
  13. Not something I'd even considered, actually, but...

    Not something I'd even considered, actually, but that is an excellent point. However, counterweighted by the fact that if we charged GST on rents, net rents to the landlord would be lower, as the...

    As I've mentioned previously on the forum here, given specific rules relating only to property which make capital gains taxable (change of zoning, relation to builder, most recently Bright Line)...

    details on how the gst is calculated, paid and gst number cancelled, for when we sell a hotel pool apartment

    Calculated at 15% - pretty simple really! To cancel GST registration you fill in an...

    In New Zealand you're allowed to leave a bank account open if you so desire. Make sure the bank knows you're non-resident so it can deduct the correct tax from your interest.

    And you're allowed to...

    Not weighing in on the racial and nature/nurture/society/individual debates, but I drive past my property in Clendon Park at least twice a month, and recently I've been really impressed at the...

    Historically, when the masses are uncertain and scared, is a good time to buy. Is now the same? Who knows.

    If you can find a good deal, it's always a good time to buy it.

    I haven't seen the stats to confirm or deny the above claim, but it doesn't sound right to me.

    The trend of skipping a generation in inheritance is starting to take hold, slowly but surely. Why give money to your kids in their 60s when your grandkids in their 20s and 30s need the money so...

    I wonder, what if the government incentivised families with spare bedrooms, renting these out?

    It's often noted that a rental sold to a homeowner decreases overall accommodation stock, because...

    I considered the Pak n Save to be a great sign for my rental in Clendon Park. My grandparents lived in Weymouth, it's a lovely area on the whole.
