    Default In general, it's simple.

    The sociopathic-commies don't want people to think for themselves. That's a danger to them;
    People who look after themselves and their future don't vote for the sociopathic-commies;
    Rather than lift up those at the bottom, (as they say), the sociopathic-commies actually want to drag down those at the top;
    Because that's where the people are who vote for the sociopathic-commies.

    The last thing the sociopathic-commies want to do is to socially engineer themselves into redundancy.

    And what has become even more important is to not rely on governments, bankers and anyone associated with them moving forward, hard to do without borrowing unless you are self made. (insert elites)

    Absolutely valid statement. I formally apologize for my comments. Let us discuss the issue of essential services then. Given that some tenants survive without ever mowing their lawns, how can you categorize lawn mowing as essential?

    The Aussies say Hairdressing is an essential service and get this - you were allowed in the salon for 30 mins and people complained it wasn't long enough so Scott has taken that time restriction away - WT..

    cheers,

    Banks and bankers go with whatever the government of the day is.
    They are totally apolitical and bmoneyed.

    Default Vacancy due to lockdown

    I have a vacant property which has been advertised for rent but due to the lockdown now, there won't be a chance to get anyone in for the foreseeable future, at least 8 weeks. I haven't read anywhere about this case - is it something that could be claimed insurance or is there something that the government can help with?

    Thanks.

    Thanks Keys.

    I offer a lawn and garden service which is usually included in the TA. This is due to the fact that I've had problems in the past with tenants that say they'll take care of the lawns themselves.
    It can become somewhat of a health and safety issue if the lawns and garden are left unattended for sometime. They become out of kilter with the rest of the property and then out of bounds, unusable. That's where my thinking and experience lies.

    It's early days yet but unless the service contractor resumes, I'm not sure what I will need to do. Possibly borrow a lawnmower and do it myself.
    It seems odd if the council have cancelled their own lawnmowing for the reserves and parks. It's going to look a real mess sooner or later if that's the case.

    As for Covid-19 here are some thoughts that may be better established in another thread at some stage :

    let's get some perspective

    Current stats 28.3.20 on Covid-19, of countries close to 0% death rate :

    Saudi Arabia 562 cases 0 deaths

    Singapore 732 cases 2 deaths

    Iceland 802 cases 1 death

    Australia 3166 cases 13 deaths

    South Africa 1170 cases 2 deaths

    Qatar 549 cases 0 deaths

    NZ 451 cases 0 deaths

    Interestingly Iceland has no lockdown, just an advisory to stay home if possible. This is I believe the best route for NZ to take.

    Then in contrast Ireland 1819 cases, 19 deaths.. Still only around 2% fatality rate. Greater aged population again.

    Italy and Spain have large aged populations. Virtually All those dying had compromised health situations. Northern Italy where most cases were reported has a huge smog problem similar to Wuhan. The virus attacks the respiratory system. Italy has 3x respiratory problems than anywhere else in europe.

    Can you now see a better perspective and realise the lockdown imposed will cost hundreds of more lives than the virus itself as job loss, economy collapse, depression, suicides, postponed elective surgery etc?
