Maintenance, HHS assessments, heat pumps, guidance for changing tenancies

                  Planning your maintenance.

Your property is a major asset, and like any asset it is in your own best interests to maintain it well and so preserve and enhance its value. Also, legally landlords are required provide and maintain their rental properties in a reasonable state of repair. Regular maintenance isn't just about avoiding costly repairs but also ensuring a pleasant living environment for the tenants. Happy tenants stay longer.

Peter Lewis, Vice President of NZPIF, discusses this subject further here.
 

 

Changing a tenancy agreement?  Here's how.

Tenancy Services has updated their website content to describe and distinguish different ways to change a tenancy agreement. Landlords and tenants should decide together which approach best suits their situation. The type of change to a tenancy agreement will have an impact on the healthy homes compliance date and Residential Tenancies Amendment Act 2020 law changes that apply. For more information go here.
