Thread: Vacancy rates

  1. #41

    In this case working singles coming together to share a house - $175 each for share accom is not too bad, but not something that we have seen much of in Porirua before now. Historically one earner (at best) with partner and multiple children.

    From my perspective, better tenants, less chance of rent default, less wear on the property as they tenants are actually out of the house all day working.

    where are the old tenants? I’m guessing moving further out from Wellington.

    Has all of a sudden the renters become higher wage earners or higher wage earners become renters? Have all the immigrants we've been bringing in recently all been super wealthy?
    no, just more people crammed into the same property
    people sharing rooms
    at the extremes theres hot bedding and couch beds

    I think 'crammed' implies disapproval, but sharing rooms need not be a bad thing even if shared by people not in a relationship. Two people sharing a room is not overcrowding.

    I do however think overcrowding is a real problem for occupiers and also landlords. There is a lot of talk about damp and mould, but overcrowding is seldom stated as a contributing cause. The Healthy Homes discussion document does not even mention overcrowding, apart from mentioning occupiers sleeping in one room due to other rooms not being heated. (So landlords fault?)

    Landlords should be onto overcrowding fast, especially going forward, as households combining is going to get more common. Due to shortages, rent increases and tenants who can't get a rental even if they can afford it.
