Section 56 of the RTA allows property managers to issue a 14 day notice to remedy any breach of the Tenancy agreement. This is best done as soon as humanly possible after the breach has occurred. If need be, follow it up with a Tribunal application. Keep in mind you can apply to the Tenancy Tribunal immediately after serving a 14 day notice, without waiting for the 14 day period to expire. This will shorten up the period that you have to wait to get a hearing. The reasoning is that if your tenant doesn’t remedy the breach in the 14 days then it is likely the rent, will then be in arrears by the minimum 21 calendar days that is required by the Tribunal to terminate the tenancy. Do your best to remain on talking terms while taking a tenant through the RTA processes. How about offering your tenant a lift to the hearing? It cuts out one excuse for them not being there.
14 day notices can be downloaded or printed straight from the TINZ Forms page. Available as both pdf or word doc.
