NZPIF report on Residential Tenancies Act Review The Ministry of Building Innovation and Employment (MBIE) have issued a review of the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA). It is a large review and extremely important for our industry.
The NZPIF has summarised the review for members and provided a short assesment on each aspect of the review.
Tenant advocates are encouraging tenants to support the review and are arranging on and off-line seminars to help tenants do this. It is imperative that as many landlords as possible also express their view as some of the proposals will be extremely damaging to our industry, including being damaging to tenants. 20-09-2018 more >>
