    He doesn't say how much time it took to get the owner to agree to the quote, most are valid anywhere from 30 - 90 days. The fact of the matter is that the roofer has let them down for some reason. If he had a signed agreement and paid a deposit then he could be in a better position as there is a valid contract.
    Six years this has been going on, he just needs to get it sorted as I said. Hopefully he got an agreement from the other owner in writing?

    If it will stand it put the rent up anyway. Labour are going to stop us lifting rents more than once a year. Get in before they do.

    There is a product called liquid rubber that you can buy online or Mega 10. Paint it on over the leaky bits. When applied by an approved applicator has a 10 year warranty. Look up there website and find out who in Wellington. Save you a heap as well.

    I am thinking about what to do.
    Let them go to avoid risk of refunding a heap of rent
    Put the rent up and have a reduction until the roof is fixed
    Put the rent up a lot and have a reduction until the roof is fixed

    Thank you
    Consider a new tenancy agreement with conditions and related information clearly spelt out.

    We have a Wellington city fringe place that leaks 2 or 3 times a year in specific very bad weather conditions. What we did was include this info in the vacancy ad and tenancy agreement, and offer - decently reduced rent, commercial carpet dryer on request, updates on what is being done to remedy (not simple). Also gave them a week's free rent after one particularly wild storm.

    Current tenants have been there a year now and no indication they are looking to leave.

    Wellington rental numbers are falling, some media reports say plummeting. With the Healthy Homes Guarantee legislation, leaking will presumably not be allowed. Those new regs are some way off but owners of rentals will be able to sell to owner occupiers. That'll be interesting if sales are publicised as being for owner occupiers only.

    Other owner is interested in an application like this, I am reluctant as iron is in terrible shape, also house is nice and has high resale potential - the spray on would be less widely understood

    Yes, thanks, I agree; sometimes I think I need to toughen up and not be so nice
