    Default Consultation on proposed RTA changes

    Will it be like the consultation on single use plastic bags? Consultation document published, open for a month or so, next minute Captain's Call - it's happening anyway so we don't care what you think.

    Interesting that proposal is for the 42 days on unconditional sale to be extended to 90 days. Not practical and if that is approved, there will be plenty being sold before that comes in.

    No cause termination is a key part and likely to be ended. Wonder if the government has thought that one through.

    90 day settlements are common in Australia so maybe just longer settlements become a thing here.

    As Artemis observes, Labour is a renters' party, so wont give a toss about what LLs concerns are.
    Especially with noddy media on their side.



    As for equalitarian treatment for LLs and tenants, only in your dreams.

    A few links to the Labour Proletariat broadside of stories for the day.

    It has certainly been an interesting couple of days of the media onslaught.

    My wife and I decided to sell one of our rentals the other day, some of the proposed changes just reinforcing our decision. Will be interesting to see the unintended consequences of this one when it comes to trying to buy a first home with existing (non fixed term) tenant- I can see the whole process becoming gridlocked!

    There is a 62 page discussion document and a 94 question online survey.

    Those who respond will mostly be advocates for some lobby group or other, maybe taxpayer funded. That was certainly my experience last time I sat in on housing related Select Committee hearings and read submissions made.

    I am still considering my response and thinking - why should I spend time and effort on a measured and detailed response knowing it will be ignored. Current thinking is to send a brief email submission saying - bring it on, the more there is a shortage of rentals the better off I will be. Higher rents, excellent tenants.

    I wish you all the very best for the future.

    Personally I'm cashing out (put the houses on the market almost a month ago) and putting my money elsewhere. This all just reinforces my decision.

    Default When will enough be enough LLS

    The attacks on LLs are coming through thick and fast. The government is working on ways to erode your rights as business owners / workers / humans and the only group I see remotely interested in fighting back is the investors federation via Andrew King. Im the same as you too busy getting on with it and happy to leave it to Andrew... in other words im a woose. That being said when do you think we will all get to breaking point and stand up for ourselves.
    Almost on a daily basis we hear how the government and tenancy groups want to reduce our business to nothing but charity... but what about our fight back... what do we want.
    Heres a start:
    Tenants must pay Interest on late payments (All types)
    Tenants pay for all damage that is caused whilst they are the tenant (Regardless if it was a visitor accident or any other reason)
    If rent is 7 days behind the tenancy can be terminated (At the LLs discretion) and personal assets held until payment recovered, or sold to recover.
    Add your wish list here

    Heres one for you all, Landlords go on strike 31.12.18 all private landlords issue tenants with termination letters. The government now has 42 days to come up with a fair and reasonable "Renter" policy to LLs, failure to do so and they will have 100k+ extra state house requirements all at once. LLs will not release those houses to the rental market until the strike is over.

    Your comments welcome

    I reached my limit already and am selling up. Simplist solution for me.

    Plenty of other investment options out there with far less costs/out goings/ headaches.

    I do like the idea of a mass eviction notice, but the bluff would be called. On the plus side, good way of getting new tenants in at a higher quality test and rent.

    The way I see it, the way LLs have been treated has been ongoing and meets the definition of bullying.

    Believe Craig David sung it best with "I'm walking away..."

    That article is about landlords, tenants and pets. What is interesting are the comments. A whole lot of them are from landlords saying they have sold up or are going to.
