 Landlord tip
  Christmas is upon us... A great opportunity to show appreciation for your tenants.
If practicable, a card and a gift can mean a huge amount to some. Even to those it doesn't, they will always appreciate the effort, and will generally encourage tenants towards appreciation of you and your property. Don't forget to keep the tax deductible receipt.

  Landlord tip of the month.   If you would like to share a Landlord tip we would love to hear from you at . We are looking for short sharp 1 or 2 paragraph tips which will help us all. If we use your tip in a newsletter there will be a small gift in the mail in appreciation for your effort.  :-)


TINZ tips.

TINZ supplies a Drivers License verification as one of the database searches.
... BUT....
We can only supply this if you have inputted the DL version into the search page. This is 5B on a Drivers License. We suggest you make a space for this Version number on your Tenancy Application form so you remember to collect it prior to your TINZ check.

 NZPIF says Rental Property WOF has serious flaws

The concept of New Zealand children living in poverty is extremely emotive, as no-one likes the idea of children living in poverty.
