    Bindi's bemoaning again.

    'KFC' test for tenants: Property managers asking for bank statements

    "It's important that property managers carry out due diligence on behalf of their clients - landlords, but the focus needs to be around ascertaining whether a tenant has stable employment and can pay the rent, not whether they spend their disposable income on KFC or Uber Eats.
    Where does it say it's disposable and what if it's not, Bindi? You're just speculating to make a strained context point.

    Bindi could be talking about REAs, there!

    Agent must pay $13,000 after misappropriating deposit funds

    Real estate agent Chris Gollins fined $10,000

    We know how well an industry-wide recognised qualification works for the REAA!

    Go peddle your empty and empire-building-biased rhetoric somewhere else.

    Just how do those ethics work again, Bindi?

    Real estate agent Max Vertongen engaged in unsatisfactory conduct
    .

    An awkward one, but still an example of those splendid REAA ethics that Bindi bangs on about.

    Another one for you, Bindi. Great REAA ethics are ingrained, eh what?

    Perry, I don't see how regulating property managers will be any different to how the tribunal polices unlawful business practices followed by PM firms....?

    That's not what I'm getting at.

    Rather, it's the constant carping by Bindi & Co about how all rental agency ills will be cured by forcing PMs to be licensed and regulated by the REA.

    Give the number of licensed REAs who breach those much-touted ethics, Bindi & Co are engaged in attempted empire building, and nothing more.

    A government agency is independent? Really? Since when?

    Code [that] real estate agents must follow? Really?

    How about should follow?

    Oh yes, sorry I'm with you now, I wonder how many people would agree with your views?

    Anglican Church latest to slag PMs off claiming licensing and regulation the answer to rental shortage. Asked for a copy of this report and was told only available to selected media and political parties. Unbelievable.

    They don't want anyone to see the report because they'd have to explain how regulating PMs would somehow, auto-magically be the answer to NZ's rental shortage.

    Verily, I say unto you, phaith moveth mountains of BS.
