 Landlord Tip

 How do you tell if the landlord reference your prospective tenant has given is real? It could be aunty down the road? One effective way is to phone the landlord, but not reveal all at the start of the conversation. So when they pick up the phone say something like; “Hello, I have been given your name as a reference for Miss Tenant. Can I ask, what is your relationship with this person?” This will catch out most aunties. Good conversation skills will help you see through the rest. Make sure you do checks on every adult tenant that intends to take up the tenancy,and have them sign the Tenancy Agreement. Then they are all jointly and individually liable for the tenancy. 



        TINZ tip 

 Warning Alerts. Our Tenant Lodgment page gives you the ability to load warning alerts regarding drug use and decontamination, or perhaps you have been verbally or physically abused by a tenant. Let the next property manager or landlord know about it by using the Tenant Lodgment pages. Found in the Lodge menu dropdown or access via 'MyTINZ' and we can automate detail for you. As always we credit your account for lodgments.
