    Wasn't it more that there was no 'crisis', though it was not clear what that actually meant. Also it was said many many times that land availability was low due largely to local authority urban limits and restrictions in the RMA. Reform to the latter was victim of MMP.

    I think there has been a crisis in one area, and that is insufficient emergency housing for an increasing number of renters unable to obtain private rentals or who have been evicted from social housing.

    If we want someone to blame, how about mean and greedy landlords who are not too keen on renting their valuable asset to potentially problem tenants. There were over 76,000 applications to the Tenancy Tribunal in 2016 and 2017, most brought by landlords. The most common issues made in the applications related to termination/possession, rent arrears, current tenancy issues and application fee refunds.

    That is a lot of easily identified potential problems for landlords, even without credit and reference checking.

    central gov. has never been responsible for releasing land for development

    that has always been the jealously held responsibility of local gov.

    local gov. then got lost up its own rectum resulting in $500,000 sections

    basic economics suggest $500,000 of land is best built with a $500,000 dwelling

    so that's what builders produced

    cue the affordability crisis

    if council could release $200,000 sections

    builders would respond with $400,000 packages to suit buyers

    now the lefties have both arms of gov.

    they will either make it work

    or completely stuff it up


    if the later

    neither will take responsibility

    for demanding 1st world "best practices"homes

    in a 2nd world "poor productivity" economy

    Government tells Hamilton council to lower housing prices
    There. That's all that's needed.
    House prices will be coming down.

    Well it is councils stopping a lot of development, so actually it makes sense.
