    Artemis - thanks for your ongoing efforts to inform the forum on this. It is even more helpful to me while I'm out of NZ.

    Default BBC - No-fault evictions to be banned in England

    Quite a long article at the below link, with input from tenants and landlords. Looks like a done deal, and that will encourage our government to follow..

    "Under the government's new plans, landlords would have to provide a "concrete, evidenced reason already specified in law" in order to bring tenancies to an end."

    A lot of confused and confusing statements in that item. Quire a few events are already covered by NZ tenancy law. E.g.
    Alicia Powell was evicted after complaining about a leak.
    In NZ, any such eviction notice would be quashed by the TT Kangaroo Kourt.

    I see that "no fault" is used to describe certain end-of-tenancy processes, rather than the asinine "no reason" language used by Dhil Twitford et al.

    All the usual claptrap emotive language is employed, too. E.g.
    no-fault eviction that they may be thrown out.
    Too hard to say that tenants received the required notice to end their tenancy.

    Same media BS dross there, as here.

    Finally! Someone has not just noticed, but mentioned what's been painstakingly obvious, for so long.

    As for LLs selling up - according to Dhil, that was just scaremongering.*

    Hang on! Twitford said that the advice was "only a scenario" and he "wasn't assuming that is going to happen."


    * "National saying that landlords are selling up is simply scaremongering," he told NZME. "Corelogic data shows that landlords purchased 38 percent of properties in October, which is consistent with the last two years - there has been no change in landlord activity."

    Dhil thinks buying and selling are the same thing.

    Worry not, all ye tenants. Dhil Twitford said it was just a scenario that he did not [want to] assume was going to happen.

    None so blind as those who cannot see.

    Ms Collins asked a whole bunch of written questions on the reform of the RTA to add more tenant rights.

    Replies due by 24 July. I will report back!

    Report eagerly awaited.

    But political rhetoric being what it is, [10,000-affordable-houses-a-year, anyone?] perhaps not too much weight should be given to it?
