New legislation has made the tenant selection process more stringent as landlords can no longer be too casual about who they let the property to. The best way to screen applicants is to be consistent and thorough. Here at myRent.co.nz, we know that good background checks lead to better tenants, happier landlords, and fewer problems. So, we've partnered with not just one, but THREE leading credit bureauxs Centrix, Equifax, and Illion to create the most thorough tenant checks for NZ landlords.

myRent.co.nz has been an official partner of NZPIF since 2019, we offer exclusive benefits for NZPIF members with 15% discount of our property management software and a FREE Trade Me advert for all new users.

                                                     

 

PACIFIC PLUMBING SUPPLIES LTD.

As NZPIA members and supporters themselves, they want members to have a purchasing advantage you would not otherwise receive.

They have been manufacturers  and suppliers to the wholesale market in NZ  for 55 years of a large range of NZ made and  imported plumbing fittings and accessories.  Their products are generally better value than your traditional providers and they are offering to members only a discount of  22% off the entire  product range.

Choose from the website, and as you can't log in as a trade customer, email them with your product codes and they will email you an invoice showing the net costs.  Once paid online the goods will be couriered to you. Website prices include GST. The email address is pacific.plumbing@xtra.co.nz

 

FAULTY HEAT LAMPS BEHIND RECENT FIRES

WorkSafe has put out a safety alert after a design fault with several brands of combination heat/light/fan units has been identified as a fire hazard.  A number of recent fires have involved older combination bathroom heat/light/fan units (manufactured before 2008) and advises users with these units to visually check for signs of damage. Landlords are encouraged to read this article and check their rentals for this combination of heat/light/fan units.

 

                                                

 

HAVE YOUR SAY ABOUT THE REGULATION OF PROPERTY MANAGERS

You have until 19 April to give your feedback about the proposal to regulate the property management industry. With the New Zealand rental market changing and a greater portion of people renting, it is important to make sure that property owners and renters have confidence that property managers meet their legal obligations.
