    Default Do Landlords provide a house or housing?

    House = Construction of various materials in a certain configuration designed to protect people from the elements..

    Housing = The provision of a house (as above) and services eg power , water, santitation, open space, gardens, as well as social aspects such as community, location, health, security etc.

    Do tenants tend to believe they are paying for housing while landlords think they are simply renting them a house?

    A "Roof", what is there is what they are providing, they go and look and if they like they rent, if they dont like they dont rent and go somewhere else.

    Housing with all the location and environment benefits are the means to market the property. But the house is all that is on the rental contract.

    Then the rental of a house in Tokoroa gets the same rental income as the same house in say Queenstown?? I think not. Tenants are paying for more than the roof??

    Marketing includes the price that you can achieve for a product. Not just advertising.

    So to put it another way .. Is the landlord providing a product or a service or a combination of both? Is it just a house or a place to live and associated amenities. Where do responsibilities lie?

    What is this leading to? I will give you a clue ... TLA/RMA

    I'm thinking that a landlord provides a package consisting of (house + location).

    Interesting question.

    Suppose the house is ok but the services are gone. Does that terminate the contract? (Some) tenants in ChCh think it should. Landlords don't.

    Suppose the house is gone but the services are ok. Everyone agrees that terminates the contract.

    Suppose the house is gone but the landlord has another identical one on offer. Everyone agrees that the tenants have no obligation to take up the other place.

    By "services" do you mean the local library and bus service?

    Or do you mean electricity and sewerage?

    I meant electricity, sewerage and water. We've got our minds on the basics down here. Of course, libraries, parks, buses etc disappeared for a while too, but I didn't hear of any tenants giving that as their main reason for leaving.
