Be careful who you trust

There are many indicators pointing to an improving property market. The economy is doing well, affordability is back to levels last seen 10 years ago, Interest rates are predicted to stay low for longer, demand is increasing yet new building consents are still quite low.

NZPIF Survey shows long wait for Tribunal

The announcement that the Department of Building and Housing (DBH) was to be moved into the new “Super” Ministry came as a shock to the industry last month. DBH had already been restructured for “efficiencies” and the general perception from all industry participants was that the service level had fallen dramatically.

Professionalism and Profitability

Having recently re-let a rental property, some of the comments from prospective tenants made me think about the service level of some rental property providers. Our rental was a nice place in nice condition and somewhere I would happily live. But it was by no means a mansion. It had not been renovated or improved for some time and we had just provided some basic extra cleaning in addition to the previous tenant’s efforts.

Should you be putting your rents up?

There has been quite a bit of media attention on increasing rental prices recently. This is a common occurrence at this time of the year, as many people are change their circumstances in the new year and University Students are coming back at the start of the new academic year. But does that mean we can all put our prices up?

What are you going to do this year?

The start of a new year is an excellent opportunity to examine your rental property, look at the investment environment and make some plans for what you want to achieve over the coming year. By the time you read this, hopefully you will still be on your Christmas break and will have some time to have a good think about what you are doing with your property, free from work or business commitments.

Tenancy Tribunal Hearing Delays

A common problem that I have been hearing for most of this year is how long it takes to get a Tenancy Tribunal hearing. I know from recent personal experience how frustrating it is to have a tenant living in your property and refusing to pay rent. You feel powerless as you wait for the hearing date to finally arrive.

The Politics of envy

The NZPIF has had two meetings this year with senior Labour Ministers. At both these meetings we asked about Labour's housing policy and if any new taxes were being considered. We were told that a land and capital gains tax had been looked at, to pay for extra planned spending, but there were problems with both and would not be part of their policy.
