    The housing minister has already said that they are waiting until Housing NZ get their act together (insulation) before they push private LL's any more.

    while those that make hay out of goat shite will deserve what they get the rest of us (the majority) will keep on providing needed, value accomodation at a competative price.

    Not that I agree that the Insurance Companies will force the Govt to do anything - they don't care, not their business.....

    Default Minimum Standards For Rentals Considered

    Now here's something that should boost rent costs for the very
    people it is supposed to help! Maybe it will only apply - at least
    initially - to WINZ-supported tenants?

    first, and then if they feel comfortable with that, they would then
    look into the private sector where there's government subsidies being
    paid towards the tenants who are in these homes," he said.

    Oh Perry you are so wrong- it is not WINZ supported tenants but Taxpayer supported tenants.
    Many many years ago I had a flat which was rented to a Taxpayer supported tenant- I used to console myself that when ever I encountered a problem with said tenant that at least the tax I was paying was going full circle!
    As to the storey re WOF for rentals yes f it ever eventuates yet another layer of meddling in our daily lives and more expensive rents for the poor tenant.
    I do agree that there should be good quality rentals and I think most of us have those but the olda adage 'buyer beware" could equally apply to renter beware - if they are not happy just move somewhere else.

    Right. As you'd guess, I know that WINZ is not
    funded from Shonkey's blind Trust. But you're
    right to pull me up on that, ahhh, 'oversight.'
