The NZPIF has launched a plan to fix the rental crisis.

 

There have been many reports of tenants finding it difficult to find suitable rental properties and rental prices increasing. Removal of the 90 day notice provisions have protected antisocial tenants without providing real security of tenure for the vast majority of tenants.

It is time to have our say on problems with renting in New Zealand and put forward sensible solutions to make things better.  You can find a summary here.  Here is the full report on our plan to fix the rental crisis.

The NZPIF plans main focus is on removing cost and tax increases to reduce pressure on rental prices plus proposing a long term tenancy option that is fair to both parties.


The  media release announcing the plan is here and you can see a Stuff article on the plan here. Have your say in the comments section of the Stuff article.
