TINZ members please note Monthly Statements will be a few days late this month. We have been in the process of remodelling our accounting systems and need a bit more testing. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

 Landlord tip
  Landlord and letting agents must keep all Tenancy Application forms for tenants they do checks on as part of the vetting process. This is very important if there is ever a complaint via the OPC (Office of the Privacy Commissioner). You must have the written record stating you have the tenants permission to make the checks you are making. Here is a look at the TINZ Tenancy Application form many of our TINZ members use.

  Landlord tip of the month.   If you would like to share a Landlord tip we would love to hear from you at newsletter@tinz.net.nz . 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 $20 gift in the mail in appreciation for your effort.  :-)


TINZ tips.

  Tenants can now load, hold, email or print Tenancy Applications online. Their Application form is kept on-line at TINZ so that you can view it, email, or print, and when you are ready to run a check through TINZ it will self-populate the search page. This means very little typing is required from you. TINZ is giving our members a link where tenants can register for FREE. This means you can have tenants fill in their applications online in your office or from home. Here is the link... http://www.tinz.net.nz/tenantnet/tinz/freetenantregister.jsp 
 Suggest you put it in your favourites. To see an example Tenancy Application, search Fred Flintstone from the SEARCH menu when logged in.
