 Landlord tip
 Our sister company, CIA Debt Recovery Group Ltd, is saying not enough property managers are aware of the October 2010 amendments to the Residential Tenancy Act which allows their collection costs to be borne by tenants. In order to recover debt collection costs a clause needs to be written into the Tenancy Agreement. The TINZ tenancy agreement has this..
 "The tenant agrees to reimburse the landlord for any reasonable expense or collection costs paid or incurred in recovering, or attempting to recover any payment that is owed under an order of the Tenancy Tribunal." >> Learn more

TINZ tips
 We are often asked to forward a tenant check which has been done previously.
Please note the MyTINZ menu is your personal space. Every tenant check or reference you lodge is recorded for you to refer back to at any time. In MyTINZ you can edit your references, and add photos. You can add or stop 'Address Alerts'. You will also find a page with your member details if you have a need to change these.
